Neutral Color Palette African Inspired Print Collection

I had so much fun creating this collection. I wanted the feel of African Mudcloth, but with a really simple, sophisticated feel. The Heart and Diamond patter in the upper left was the first pattern I created for this collection and I love the grassy texture that really gives the pattern some depth and texture….

Neutral Heart & Diamond Print

I wanted a simple yet graphic print for this collection. The colors are in line with the coordinates, but this pattern is on a larger scale. This is one of the first patterns I’ve ever created with Corel Paintshop Pro, and I think it worked out rather well. Quite honestly, I don’t even remember the…

Charcoal Woven Mudcloth Print

This print was inspired by Mudcloth – I love the tribal vibe with the pattern and the woven texture against the charcoal gray makes it seem really authentic.  This really was one of my favorite prints from the collection and when I put it on these products I got super excited about it.  From my…

Aqua Batik Print – Malaysian Floral Collection

This is the second colorway that I developed for the new collection.  I could go on and on about how I chose my colors and how excited I was to put it all together, but I’m going to save that for the next juicy post…

Lime Batik Print

You might know that this summer, I decided to join the Textile Design Lab  for the Summer of Creativity.   This collection was inspired…

Canyon Falls Print Coordinates

The Canyon Falls print is one that I did a few years ago – but I didn’t develop coordinates at that time.  Since then, I have revisited the collection and come up with a few new twists on the design – and one “new direction” for the idea that I’ll be debuting in a few…

Coordinate Print – Canyon Circles and Stripes

 This is a coordinate print from the Canyon Collection – it is the reverse print on pillows and duvet covers for the Craftsman Inspired Circles and Stripes pattern.  I loved it so much, it’s also available in bath coordinates just by itself – or you know you can combine it with the other prints. Geometric…

Abstract Circles and Stripes Print

This print reminds me of the craftsman-style movement.   The colors are neutral, but deep and rich.  There are abstract circles, along with subtle stripes – think sunset over canyons and you’ve got the inspiration for this print.  I wanted to keep the colors muted so it can go anywhere, and honestly when I design I…

Canyon Waterfall Print

This was inspired by the colors of the canyons in the American Southwest and the reflections seen in the waterfalls there.  This print has a light feel to it, with waves, multiple tones, and rippled texture.  The colors are teal, burnt orange, cream, smoke blue, aqua, and peach. I layered the image with a subtle…
