Printsource 2015

I am excited to announce that my work will be at Printsource (a surface pattern and textile trade show in NYC) this January 13th and 14th, 2015, represented by Cultivate Art Collective at Booth A17! I’ve been rather quiet on the pattern front for the past few months, and that has been entirely due to preparing a whole lot of brand new work that has never been seen before for this show! If you are attending, I hope you’ll stop by the booth and check out my work :)

Forty Winks – Pattern Design

This is a new surface pattern design “Forty Winks” that was created for a calligraphy-based pattern themed competition currently being held by Spoonflower and UPPERCASE Magazine. I did all the lettering by hand, first starting with pencil and them scanning in my artwork to then create digitally. I thought it would be fun to create a sleepy themed pattern and use strong graphic words and symbols associated with that. There was also a monochromatic color restriction (black-grey-white) which was another interesting challenge so I had a lot of fun using some different techniques than you might normally see in my work here :)

Ornamentary – Textile Design

My pattern for the Spoonflower contest this past week was “Ornamentary,” which you can likely guess is ornament-themed :) I went with Christmas, as that is what I associate with the word and there are so many fun shapes! I created more antique feeling ornaments which remind me of Christmases long ago at the family farm.
