Hey! I wanted to share my fresh prints! I recently completed this series after starting the first one as a class demo. This is my first series of work combining watercolour and gouache together. It was a big learning curve and I really enjoyed being a stylist - decorating each room and deciding on a colour scheme for each one.
Which one is your favourite?
These illustrations will be available as A4 prints and as a 4-pack of greeting cards in my Etsy store next week!

This is such a fun way to create a repeating pattern with minimal photoshopping.
I started off painting my design in the centre of my paper. This square will be the size of the repeating section.
I carefully measure and cut my page into four quarters... the centre points go to the outside, then I proceed to fill in the blank areas with pattern, painting across the cuts.
I match the sides as I continue to fill in across other cut lines until I'm happy with the design.
The pieces look like this once I'm finished ^ then I scan them into my computer to join them back together as a seamless tile that can be repeated again and again! Check out the final patterns below:
I'm excited to announce that I've relaunched my Society6 store and have opened a RedBubble store. I have built up a nice portfolio of designs over the last 12 months and will now be making them available on cushions, backpacks, phone covers... even dresses and leggings. It's super exciting. These stores periodically have free shipping and other promotions, so if you want to be notified, subscribe to my mailing list and I'll keep you informed.
Here's what I've been up to:
Over the last six months I have been working to build up a portfolio of watercolour work available for licensing. Now that my website overhaul is finished I'm happy to launch this new part of my business. I'll be uploading lots of beach-inspired repeat patterns and illustrations over the coming months.
