New Wallpaper with Chasing Paper


Screen Shot 2015-08-21 at 9.21.46 AM

Friends, I am so excited today to be released three new wallpaper patterns with Chasing Paper. Chasing Paper is different than traditional wallpaper: it’s well-designed removable wallpaper that will stick to nearly any surface! Genius! I hope you will be inspired by the patterns I’ve created and I am sure some of you will think of some very creative ways to use these! Oh, and I’ve also got a discount code for you today too (scroll to the bottom of the post for that).

First up: Little Village. Drawing old architecture in a stylized playful way has always been a beloved part of my repertoire, so creating this pattern was so much fun for me. For the pattern Little Village, I drew a montage of old medieval styled buildings stacked on and behind each other with clean lines and modern, stark colorways. I love the interplay between old and new & traditional and modern in this pattern!

Next up: Poppy! love drawing all-over floral motifs! This pattern is a hand drawn pattern of my favorite flower: the poppy. I grew up in California, so the poppy holds a special place in my heart. There are so many varieties of poppies, and the pattern includes poppies from all over the world. My favorite colorway is the vermillion red, which is the most ubiquitous poppy color.

Finally there is Folk, the boldest pattern of the bunch. For the past ten years I have been really interested in traditional folk pattern and folk art, and much of the imagery in my work reflects that passion. About a year ago, I began drawing patterns in my sketchbook that included traditional folk symbols, like the heart, the hand and fruit shapes. To create this wallpaper pattern, I used many traditional folk motifs and then added some of my own favorite imagery to the mix, like scissors, teacups, trees and a few animals to create this pattern. I love taking traditional imagery and making them modern. I think Folk is a great example of the perfect mix of traditional and modern. Best of all? It comes in four colorways!

Have a great weekend, friends!

You can get yours here (comes in most phone model sizes). I’ve also got a bunch of other designs to choose from here.

Wait, there’s more! You can now order pillows through Nuvango, and I’m offering Grey Garden as a throw pillow.


As always, you can order my Nuvango designs as laptop skins too.

Was pretty excited when I found out that the Land of Nod (who I’ve been designing for now for several years) gave my Hygge and West Triangle Wallpaper a shout out in their email marketing campaign yesterday. You can see it here in the background of the room pictured above and you can purchase the wallpaper (in several colorways) here. Thank you, Land of Nod!

I’m playing a bit of catch up after an amazing experience teaching Become a Working Artist through CreativeLive the past two days (thank you to everyone who turned up!), but I’ll be back tomorrow with a recap and some photos.

Happy Thursday!


New Phone//Laptop Skins & Cases!



I am incredibly excited to now be offering Phone cases & skins, along with cases & skins for other devices including iPads and computers. I am thrilled to be working with Nuvango (formerly GelaSkins) to produce high quality, sturdy products with my designs. For my launch, I have uploaded four different designs. Don’t see something you like? Every week I’ll be uploading a new design.

Pattern of the Week!



Introducing Arches — this week’s repeat pattern (seen here in two difference versions).

Tomorrow I am off to TYPO International Design Conference, where I am speaking on Friday. I’m taking tomorrow off from the blog, but am going to check in Friday about the conference, so stay tuned!

Have a great Wednesday, friends!


Pattern of the Week!



This week’s repeat pattern is made from drawings of one of my favorite things to draw: succulents! If you take my basic line drawing class (which is available if you subscribe to Creativebug), one of the lessons is all about drawing succulents. (BTW: there is no start or end time to this drawing class so you can take it at any time!)

I plan to make a few more patterns from succulent drawings over the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more.

Have a happy Friday and a great weekend.


Pattern of the Week!



I’m attempting to create one new pattern a week between now and May, which, amidst my crazy schedule, is proving to be difficult (I failed miserably wasn’t able to make one last week). But his week I managed to finish this pattern, called “Pearls” shown here in two colorways.

Enjoy & happy Tuesday.

CATEGORIES Repeat Patterns

New Repeat Pattern :: Hot Air Balloons!



You might recall a couple of weeks ago I shared with you this pattern I made recently. I’m in the process of building up my repeat pattern portfolio, and here’s another I made last week (shown in two colorways).

Also, don’t forget that my four-week basic line drawing class starts today! And it’s not too late to sign up. Just register with Creativebug and you’ll have access to my class and hundreds more (for only $9.95 a month). Everything is online and you can participate at your own pace.

Enjoy and happy Tuesday!
