Besides digital painting daily, I divide my creative time between painting and illustrating pattern designs. New to pattern design only a couple of months, I’m working on several collections for the coming year that are ideal for home decor, gift products, and fashion.
So far, I’ve started a fashion inspired collection, a holiday collection for gift wrapping products, and a whimsical collection. One thing I’ve learned about creating pattern designs for seamless patterns — it’s far more detailed and involved than digital painting. It requires a different kind of skill set that includes a strong sense of precision in the creation stage. There’s a lot of thought ahead in what I’m creating and how it can evolve as an image that can be used for seamless patterns.
Here’s a few of my newest repeat patterns I’ve been working on and two art umbrellas that customers recently purchased from my online shop as it evolves.
