I feel like I’ve been posting about my new “Modern Chintz” pattern design a bit much lately but I’ve just entered it in this week’s Spoonflower Design Challenge which just so happens to be “Chintz”! So thought I would let you know. On one hand, this design started with all those old-fashioned floral chintz patterns you've seen so much of (and which I love), but the way I drew the motifs and the fun colours are definitely more of today! If you would like to check out all the gorgeous designs, you can link to the Voting Page here (voting ends Nov 12)!

My son saw my brand new butterfly pattern and said it was "trippy"! What do you think, is it trippy? Maybe not trippy enough??! I think I will call this one "Free Spirits", a nod to the free-spirited optimism of the psychedelic 60s! Let me know what you think! This design is now available to license and if you are interested to license it for your products, just contact me!
When I'm working in my studio I often get distracted by little movements in the bushes outside my windows, usually caused by cute little gorgeous birds...So this new design is me trying to capture them in pattern! If you would like to follow along with more of my recent work, I invite you to check out my Instagram!
Can you tell I was just in Mexico? Couldn't wait to get back and start designing some new Mexico-inspired pattern designs...Here is my brand new "Folk Flowers" (I might change the name, any suggestions?). This one is all about bright colours and simple shapes, people tell me it's a happy design. I like that description! This pattern is now available to license, and more will be coming in this collection. If you are interested in licensing this design for your products, please do contact me!
This week's Spoonflower design challenge is "Neutral Retreat", the idea for this challenge was to create a larger-scale pattern for cozy bedding...I think my "Hellebores" pattern design in this Vintage colour palette does the trick! Check out the Voting Page (and all 859! entries, some of which I'm not sure I would call "neutral" though, maybe mine is borderline!)
Do you love pugs? I know that people who love pugs REALLY LOVE pugs, so my new “I Love Pugs” pattern design is for you! I’ve entered this one in this week’s Spoonflower “Dog Days” Design Challenge! Link here to the Voting Page!

Check out the tons of amazing eye candy designs and vote your faves (until July 16)...Link to the Voting Page!
After taking the Create Collections course from Victoria Johnson Create Explore and creating my "Bugology" Collection (check out the #createcollections hashtag on IG for more designs created during this class!), I couldn't resist designing another collection on the theme of "birds, butterflies and blooms"! So here is my "Palace Walls" Collection partially inspired by all the gorgeous colours and patterned textiles I've seen on several trips to India!
