||I am a surface pattern designer, illustrator, and I studied for 4 years in architecture but I pursued the surface design industry because I feel that's where my heart belongs. Because of my previous studies, I have a wide background in interior design and how design work on different surfaces to create a harmonious design. I believe that empathetic design is a good design.
|About My Designs
||My style focuses on timeless design motifs and neutral colors that can blend artistically and aesthetically to contemporary interior design (home decor) and elegant fashion. All of my patterns are vectorized illustrations (i.e. can be scaled in large prints without losing their quality) coming from hand-drawn sketches, oil, and watercolor paintings, and actual plants brought and enhanced digitally in Photoshop and Illustrator.
|My Source of Inspiration
||My work is inspired by arabesque, geometry, botanical, and earth patterns. I create my art to appreciate the wonders of nature.
