I woke up to a lovely surprise today – a feature on Print and Pattern blog. Print and Pattern is an industry blog from the UK that “celebrates the world of surface design”. It is a great resource to learn about surface design, see work from around the world and learn about new artists and companies who make beautiful designs. I have been reading it for years and so excited to be on their site today. See samples of my new work and the feature here.Leave a Comment
May 15-17th I will be exhibiting at Surtex in New York. Surtex is a tradeshow where artists and agencies all over come to sell and license their artwork to manufacturers. I have participated in the past here and here with my collective, Art Licensing LA. Doing the show with a collective was a great way for me to exhibit, share resources and split duties at a fraction of the cost of doing it alone. This year is my solo debut and I am really excited to have my own booth and show my work such as my new tropical collections, florals, lettering pieces and fruit and veggie art. If you are attending come see me! I will be in booth #455.
I am now taking appointments. Please email me here to set up a time to meet!

I am also excited to share my new promotional video for Surtex (video by Desi Bee Photo). It was a lot of fun to make and I am so happy to share my story with you.

I’m leaped out of my chair when I visited Amour Vert’s website and saw my textile design on this gorgeous sundress! I LOVE seeing my designs on garments and this dress silhouette is just so flowy and breezy. Really love how it looks on silk.
I was directed to design a pattern with an ethnic feel like an Indonesian floral or Indian paisley, densely packed and ornate. I researched patterns in that style, made several sketches and scanned them. I worked in Illustrator and tossed them into an allover pattern. I feel I designed an expressive interpretation of an “ethnic” floral. I was so delighted to see this pattern on a dress – such a good pairing!

Hello April! It is still raining on and off here in LA (that’s our winter) so I thought this phrase was appropriate for this month’s desktop calendar. Download it for your computer or mobile device! Have a great April!

I love a good collab and especially when some of my favorite brands combine forces and offer affordable and desirable products. Here are two that you shouldn’t miss…
1. Target x Marimekko
Target has a knack for teaming up with popular and fashionable brands like Lilly Pultizer and Mossimo. Well they are doing it again on April 17th and this time it’s Finnish design house: Marimekko! Check out these gorgeously graphic garments and goodies and see the entire line here! I have my eye on a few items and will definitely get in line at my local Target on the 17th.
2. Uniqlo x Liberty of London
Fashion brand, Uniqlo, is known for their collaborations with famous designers, artists and companies like MOMA, Pharell and most recently the popular Christophe Lemaire collab. This month on March 24th they released their latest clothing partnership with lifestyle brand Liberty of London. I am a BIG fan of Liberty of London’s timeless patterns like their English florals. I haven’t had a chance to get to Uniqlo but you better believe I will be there this week. Check out these adorable tees and fun patterns for women, girls and even button downs for the guys!
