Fish swim. Birds sing. I create patterns. I designed my first repeating pattern as class assignment 10 years ago, and I haven’t stopped since. My style is always evolving, but my love for bold graphics, clean lines, cheerful colors and a healthy dose of playfulness has remained consistent from the beginning. I enjoy experimenting with abstraction, and the delicate balance between positive and negative space. Pattern design is my favorite way to celebrate and explore color, drawing inspiration from the beautiful and bizarre forms found in nature, the incredible legacy of mid-century design, and the moments in everyday life where the mundane meets the serendipitous. The process is as much about play as work; it’s an exciting investigation of ideas, colors, shapes, textures, and scale. Each day I look forward to discovering where the limitless possibilities will lead!

Pattern of the Week

Pattern of the Week is a project I started at the beginning of 2013, to provide an outlet for my compulsive need to create repeating designs. Every week for two years, I created a new, original design, and shared it on Tumblr.
