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.
