ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Who do you design for and what is your style?
I create minimalist, modern patterns for the home decor market. My style is bold and graphic, influenced by my background as a printmaker, and my love for silkscreen-printed fabric. As a freelance surface pattern designer, I aim to collaborate with brands who share a love of clean, modern design, and who share a passion for quality materials and thoughtful production. Surface pattern design has the power to transform a space, and I love to create handmade patterns that remain stylish for many seasons.
What inspires you?
Getting out of my pattern design studio and going for walks gives my mind a chance to daydream and wander, and often leads to inspiration. Learning from other artists is always a treat, and collaboration often leads me to new ideas. I learned how to design fabric by collaborating with another artist, which lead to me launching my own business! I love to visit art museums to stand in awe of the work that other artists have created... it's humbling and inspiring all at once.
What do you love about being a designer?
I love seeing how my textile designs are used in the real world! I get a little boost of happiness anytime I see one of my decor pieces in a photo of someone's home. Knowing that someone loves to live with your designs is the ultimate compliment for a pattern designer like me.
What else would you like us to know about you?
I'm obsessed with textiles, home decor, and printmaking, but I love to work with brands in every industry. If you've got an idea for collaboration, I'd love to hear from you. Visit my website to see my surface pattern portfolio, or email me to talk about creating a custom pattern for your brand.
