Illustrations aren’t just for the paper page. For these repeating patterns I started with sumi ink paintings. Then I digitized them and arranged them into patterns that seamlessly repeat. Now that they repeat they can be printed on to anything of any size, from fabric, to phone cases, and plastic shower curtains.

Layered watery ink created graceful and soft feathers that float on a navy background.

Dog Gone It Pattern

Graphic, playful puppies painted in ink are just begging for a scratch behind the ear in white, taupe, & soft rose on a dusty blue background.
