Eucalyptus Flower Pattern Design

I’ve been enjoying drawing with my stylus of late and then bringing my sketches into my graphic design program. From there I vectorise the sketches, clean them up and then build on to them to create patterns. It’s a fun process and one I’m sure that will develop the more I experiment. Here was the […]

Surface Pattern Design

Australian surface pattern designer

I had good intentions of updating this blog regularly, but as I’ve been so immersed in creating surface pattern designs along with my normal design projects, I’ve found that my blog has been neglected. BUT, I do update regularly to Instagram and am using that as my blogging tool. I also share my Instagram posts […]

Blue and White Quilt Covers

Blue and White doona covers

Firstly, Happy Easter to everyone. We are spending Easter around home this year and have a few family members coming to visit and stay tomorrow night, so that will be fun. We will crank up the WeberQ and sit back and chill with a few wines. When I first started out on my Surface Pattern […]

Easy Pizza Base

Pizza base with just 2 ingredients

This easy pizza base uses just two ingredients….yes that’s right! I was a bit sceptical when I first heard about it, but it is my go-to pizza base now as it is super easy. I used to use pre-made bases which are made by a local company, and I still do keep one of those […]

New pattern design and how it came to be

I’m going to take you through the design process using a few screenshots of how my latest design was born. Sometimes when I sit down to design a pattern, I will usually have been inspired by something I’ve seen whether it be a colour combination, shape or something else. This time, my new design started […]

Packaging idea for bake sale

Cup Cake Presentation

Last year a friend was organising a fundraiser for her daughter by holding a ‘street stall’ or ‘bake sale’. I said I would provide some baked goods, so planned to bake some banana muffins. As the day of the sale drew nearer I had an idea of how I could present them so they looked […]

Modern throw blanket design

Modern Throw Blanket so warm and cosy

It’s been a while in the making, but this is the first post on my new blog/website. Since the beginning of 2017, I started dabbling in surface pattern design (creating digital patterns for adding onto products eg homewares, blankets, apparel, fabrics, accessories etc). I opened my first store and loaded my initial designs onto Spoonflower […]
