I thought I’d take a moment here and celebrate patterns.
I’ve always enjoyed drawing patterns. When I really started diving into my own artistic practice, I was carried along by patterns.
A pattern helps me feel grounded and safe. I decide on the design elements, and then just repeat and repeat and repeat.
Then in 2019 I learned the magic of creating patterns that seamlessly repeat, which means when you repeat the pattern, you can’t tell where it begins and ends. Seamless.
Now, anytime I create a new design I like the added challenge of turning it into a pattern. Like these cherry blossoms I wrote about in my last blog post.
Next I want to create a pattern from my Reef Fish design.
A place to share the process. A space to be honest about the triumphs and trials of my daily life as an artist and mama. Writing motivates and refreshes me.
