SURFACE PATTERN DESIGN

Surface design, illustration

I am in love with color, and the other basic elements of art and design: line, texture, and shape. I am inspired equally by geometric
shapes and by more organic, natural shapes. Much of this pattern work is created intuitively: I start with a color or shape in my head
and build the pattern or composition from that point, often in one sitting. Many of these compositions were originally mixed media
drawings, scanned into Photoshop and applied to household objects. Several of the compositions were created from hand drawn
or painted elements, and then the pattern was created in Illustrator.
