I do love an all-blue pattern design! My newest design (on the left) is called "Berry-luscious" and I designed it to accompany my "Three Little Birds" design which I posted about a few days ago. I envision these together for home decor (armchair with pillows? wallpaper?), on super fun giftware, for gorgeous apparel, or as the start of a fantastic fabric collection...Contact me if you are interested in licensing these designs for your products!
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!
I recently did a series of these Folk Floral designs, and I ended up submitting this one for this week's Spoonflower Folk Art Tea Towel Design Challenge! There really are so many wonderful designs this week! I just voted! If you would like to cast your vote, check out the Voting Page!

Here are two more in a series of 4 folk-inspired floral designs (see my previous Blog post for the first two in this series!) that I have designed for greeting cards. Have a look at all 4 and let me know which you like best...and why?!
I've been slowly but surely working on a series of folk-inspired greeting card layouts the last few days, in response to a creative brief from the Make It In Design Live Hub community that I belong to! Here are the first 2 designs (of, hopefully, 4) in the series. I am curious...which one do you like better and why? Colours? Layouts? I'm going to get started on #3 ASAP!
Any guesses what kind of flowers these are?! Hint: think tropical Mexico and Hawaii, sunshine and warmth, bright colours, turquoise water, beaches and margaritas and tequila! This new pattern design is part of a new collection I'm working on and is now available to license! Just contact me to inquire. Hint: they start with a B...
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!)
I entered my "Luna" pattern design in this week's Spoonflower "Moths" Design Challenge! When I was researching this theme, I was amazed by how many different shapes and colours moths come in...but I loved the shape of this one!

Bronze, Rose, Forest and Spearmint...the four colours in this week's Spoonflower "Limited Colour Palette" Design Challenge (I added optional white too!) Here is my entry, a 1970s inspired floral I call "Bohemia"! With thanks also to the MIID Live Hub for the retro-themed inspiration! Check out the tons of amazing eye candy designs and vote your faves (until July 16)...Link to the Voting Page!
