ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Who do you design for and what is your style?
I am open to designing for any market. My bright and whimsical style lends itself to successful pattern designs for children's products and the quilting market. My surface patterns are hand painted designs as well as computer generated patterns. I am ready to work for any client, whatever their needs may be.
What inspires you?
I never go anywhere without my sketchbook. I'm in a constant state of visual stimulation and try to get as many ideas down on paper as they arise. Then I find that the sketches I've done always spark other ideas for exploration.
What do you love about being a designer?
Over my illustrious career, I've had the privilege of being a sign painter, crafter, logo developer, book designer, art director, illustrator, typographer, muralist and now a budding surface pattern designer. As a designer, I love that I can have fun in every aspect of the creative process. For me, it's not just the end result that gets me excited, it's the process of getting there that's the greatest reward.
Where can you be found/what are you doing on your days off?
On my days off, I like to spend time discovering new handcrafts to try.
