I have always had a love of design and an eye for color. After studying fashion design, merchandising, and business in college, I spent several years in the apparel industry working in various product development roles, including textile design. It was during that time that I discovered my love of designing patterns for textiles and other products - I was hooked!
Eventually, I took a leap and decided to start my own business doing what I love! As a textile and surface pattern designer, I specialize in creating patterns and artwork for fabrics, paper products, stationery, and many other items. I am passionate about American-made products, so, it was important to me that my own line of contemporary designs be featured on products that were printed and made right here in the USA! Additionally, many of the items that I offer - such as the journals, tote bags, magnets, tea towels and more - are also handmade or sewn by me in my Atlanta-area studio!
I am frequently inspired by the beauty of nature, as well as my local community surroundings. My artistic design process begins with a lot of sketching and freehand stitching on paper. Then I take my doodles and sewn motifs and scan them into the computer so that I can use them to create my digital pattern designs. I colorize my artwork using bright and happy color palettes to make contemporary patterns with a playful spirit. Finally, I print my artwork onto various papers and fabrics so that I can apply my unique pattern designs to products just for you!
I am a firm believer that everyone needs a healthy dose of fun and a pinch of quirkiness in their lives! Our patterned products are the perfect way to add a little bit of cheerfulness and positive energy to your life. I love knowing that my designs are bringing a smile to someone's face and I sincerely hope that you enjoy using them just as much as I enjoyed creating them!
