Welcome to the Passion for Pattern Blog Hop. So happy to have you join us!
I hope you have had a chance to visit Anna Dents blog on the hop, just before mine.If you have arrived here and would like to start at the beginning, just click on the link here and you will begin at the lovely Claire Smillies blog- the talented designer and creator behind this blog hop.
Everyone involved in the hop is passionate about pattern. I have laughed many times when I have heard mention of seeing pattern in their sleep. I know this well! Designing prints and pattern is addictive-similiar to putting together pieces of a puzzle.
Pattern is all around us. If you stop and look at your surroundings you will discover it is everywhere. From the grain of bark on your front yard tree to the blooming flowers on your back deck. We are surrounded by pattern.
I have been fascinated by the colors,pattern and textures of nature forever. Most of my work is inspired by my surroundings and handcrafted by pen, paint, paper or photo.Lately I have been trying to stretch my imagination and work on lots of dfferent subject matter. Sometimes I just need a little help from my friend…
Sometimes I just need to get out on my bike to find a little inspiration, or at least think about getting out there.
Most of the time though my inspiration is found right in my very own backyard. Nature plays a very big role in my work.
Sometimes you just have to sit back and have fun. Many of my doodles have found their way into the digital world.
I am still unsure of what I would like to have my work featured on, but for now its very fun putting it on just about everything!
My vision is of a diverse portfolio that ties in all of my creative passions in an artful way.I am very excited, but have to keep telling myself – practice, patience, perseverance – it is all a very slow, but enjoyable process.One that I am approaching with eyes wide open!
I hope you enjoy the very diverse and wonderful work of all those participating.
Thanks for popping by and pleased join me again soon. Lots of creative goodness being shared here ( and hopefully a new website soon!)
