Big THANK YOU to everyone who voted in last week's Spoonflower "Australian Flora" Design Challenge! The RESULTS are just in and my "Eucalyptus" pattern design in this Orange colour palette (check out my Portfolio-Flora page to see two other palettes) squeaked into the Top Ten (I'm listed at #11, but thankfully there was a tie for #9) out of 602 eligible entries! So this design is now available for purchase at Spoonflower on many different fabrics, wallpaper and giftwrap. And see below...you can now buy it on wonderful home decor products at Roostery as well! Again, thank you for your votes! On to the next Design Challenge...
I've been playing with my newest pattern designs the last few days, and visualizing them on pillows and fabrics! I think my Far East Collection would look gorgeous on a set of pillows; my Fanciful Collection would be great for quilters or girl's dresses; my newest tropical patterns, including my Botanical Gardens Collection, Celestun and Hibiscus, would cheer up any wardrobe or interior space, and I think my Koyasan Collection would be so calming in any room! What do you think?! Can you envision these designs on other products? Let me know!
Hello! I just entered 5 of my pattern designs (some brand new and some older favourites) in Ohh Deer's Pillow Fight Design Competition! If you have a moment to support me, I would greatly appreciate your vote (you do have to register to vote, but it's very quick)! And if you love any of them, you can also purchase these as well for a limited time only (and a purchase would also give me 50 points!) Click on the images below to link to the competition pages where you can vote. If you click on my name there you can see (and vote for) all 5 of my submitted designs (or come back here to link to each design). I thank you!
This week's brief for FolioFocus 2018 was "AstroSynergy"! So I decided to design some Signs of the Zodiac, starting with "Taurus". Here is a collection with a placement print and several repeat designs. I might try and do "Aries" next...Are you a Taurus?! This collection would be wonderful on bedding, as shown!
I love how new colours change the feel of a surface pattern design collection! Here is my "How Does Your Garden Grow?" Collection in Dusky Pink and the original Fresh Green colour palettes. Take your pick! Which do you like best? Both colour ways will be available at Surtex and Blueprint Show 1 this May in NYC with Nerida Hansen Print & Textiles!
Thought I would give you another "sneak peek" of what I've been working on. This super fun collection features cute and friendly vehicles zooming along on their merry ways, looking forward to travelling adventures! I conceived of this collection for children, but I think I would love to have these pillows too! These new patterns and many, many more will be showing with Nerida Hansen Print & Textiles at BOTH Surtex and Blueprint Show 1 in May in NYC. Come see!
Just thought I would mockup some of my new pattern collections on the wonderful mockups from Nerida Hansen! On the left, my "How Does Your Garden Grow?" Collection and on the right, my "Sunny Climes" Collection. I can feel the warm breezes already...
Here is my submission for Week 2 of MATS Creating Collections for Home Decor. This week we focused on fabric...so here is my "Flower Child" collection! I am really learning a lot in this course, love it!
I just entered three designs in the Wraptious Cushion Competition, the exciting prize is the opportunity to join their company as a designer! The top 8 artists will be shortlisted based on points. I can get 1 point from every Facebook Like and a whopping 50 points for each sale. I would greatly appreciate it if you could LIKE my THREE cushion designs, Just click on each photo above to go to the Wraptious comp page and Like by clicking the button at the bottom of each page!

I can attest that Wraptious cushions are super soft and the print quality is excellent. They ship quickly all over the world. I currently have 2 other designs for sale with them and I did purchase them for my mom!
