Having a passion for textiles, pattern design, and color has always inspired me to create.

 

I take a multidisciplinary approach to my designs working with paint, hand dying, screen printing, block printing, collaged materials and drawing.

My design process usually begins with a drawing or sketch.  Drawing has always enabled me to better conceptualize the design I am working on. 

I love the idea of bringing a drawing to life through pattern and appreciate the way it can express the feeling of the artist through the line quality.

I am intrigued by the way pattern and color can enhance one’s life by allowing you to dream or connect with your space or the story a pattern can express through its composition and content.
