I’m a surface pattern designer who loves to make bold and bright coloured designs. Most of my patterns are inspired by subjects and shapes from nature. Moodboards and hand-drawn sketches are the basis of my pattern designs which I then translate into my signature graphic style.
My patterns have been licensed for home textiles, bags, umbrellas, tents, wrapping papers, cards, gift tags and more.
Next to commissions and the licensing of my patterns I design and develop my own paper and textile products.
Our URBAN PATTERNS collection, a collaboration between Manon Garritsen and me, is now also available via Giftique!

New patterns in the catalogue!
A few months ago I went to the second hand bookstore to buy a random book for inspiration. I chose a book called ‘Wild Flowers’ with over a thousand species by photographic identification, published in 1978. AVENS #1, AVENS #2, AVENS LEAF and HOGWEED are the first patttern designs inspired by the wild flower photographs, more to come!
