Just a few days into the “Art & business of surface pattern design” course and I’m loving it already. Spending time playing and combining textures and images is so inspiring.

I have been seeing patterns in life for many years and it is so refreshing to know this is why! It feels like it’s in my blood, like wax and plaster and color!

Here are a few images I have collated with some gorgeous textures.

Then I took myself off to the book shop and found this AMAZING book – As you know I LOVE mandala’s, circles and color. Perfect inspiration and candy for the eyes
