My patterns are inspired by the loveliness in nature, simplicity, old world charm, and my suburban downtown neighborhood. My designs are sweet and playful with a hint of adventure.
I start my patterns with sketching (typically using watercolor or gouache, but sometimes pen and pencil), then scan my sketches and edit them in Photoshop before arranging the elements into a repeating pattern in Illustrator.
