Module 2 of “The Art and Business of Surface Pattern” started yesterday and I am excited to progress with some of the pattern concepts I started to work on a few months ago. Many of them inspired by the patterns, shapes and colors inspired from my travels earlier this year.

I love looking at photographs, so as I start to dive back in, I wanted to share a few I am constantly inspired by from my time in Tasmania in January this year. I love the natural lines we find in nature.

post_naturallinesAll the trees had these natural lines inscribed into them.

Reminded me of how we can create lines with a sewing machine.

What are some of the natural lines in nature that inspire you?
