Updated online portfolio

It’s taken some time but I’m super thrilled to show you my, updated online portfolio! The last time I added design work was back in December 2016. Since then, I’ve been a busy bee, producing lots of yummy patterns and illustrations through online courses (Rise Design & Shine and MATS Bootcamp by Lilla Rogers), Deva Designs and for my agent, Brenda Manley.

My style has developed a lot over the past six months and I wanted my portfolio to represent this. Also, I’ve selected pieces that I love and have proved to be popular on social media i.e. instagram, Facebook and Twitter for example.  Going back six months, I felt that my previous portfolio showed varied styles. This isn’t such a bad thing, but I’ve been constantly working with different techniques, materials and colours, that over time, a style has just emerged.

In my portfolio, I have a mixture of illustrations and patterns. I’ve been designing patterns for a number of years and not so much illustrations, yet at present I’m loving the illustration side.

I’ve kept the site clean and simplistic in appearance, with lots of white space for the colours in my designs to stand out.  Before updating my portfolio, I did a bit of research to see what layout I preferred. Also, I wanted it to navigate showing collections. For example, each window has a thumbnail and then other designs follow within this collection. Although, not all the windows are like this, for some of the other designs are stand alone patterns or illustrations.

I’ll be adding new products soon in my Etsy shop and on Society6, which i’m currently working on. I’ll be sharing these with you in a future blog post, so stay tuned!

Fun holiday inspired designs

It’s funny how the weather can influence what type of work you produce. As you well know (if you follow my blog), summer is my all time favourite season and I want to share with you a few, fun holiday inspired designs.

In winter, most people stay indoors to keep snug and warm. I’d say I’m at my happiest when the sun is shining, the days are longer and everybody comes out of hibernation.  Animals are usually hibernating in winter, too, so when the summer season starts, the world just feels more alive!

I create many different types of designs, to pass through to my agent. These include florals, children’s, Halloween, birthdays, Easter, Christmas designs and so on. Even though I produce Christmas designs all year round, it’s not easy, trying to feel the festive spirit in the middle of July! I’m sure lots of designers have this same issue! I’d much prefer to be thinking about the sun, sand, beaches and swimming pools, and these are all included in my recent work. I hope you like them.
