Surface Pattern Collections

I love designing patterns and enjoy working in a variety of styles and mediums, including digital, linoleum, pen and ink, and gouache. These collections are part of an ongoing personal project to explore scale, color, composition, materials, and variety in seamless pattern design.

Collection 01

This collection is inspired by a recent trip to Morocco. It's included in UPPERCASE Magazine's Surface Pattern Design Guide, a special part of Issue #32 (January 2017) that features the best in established and up-and-coming surface pattern designers.

Materials: digital
