About Me I'm a Colombian Fashion, Textile and Surface Pattern Designer living in Milan. I'm in LOVE with nails, 'all things cute'; animals (especially furry ones), textiles, sewing, costumes (firm believer that any occasion is good to dress up!), childlike things, gelato, chocolate and nutella, my mom and grandma's food and lastly, I have a peculiar obsession for fake eyelashes.
About My Designs I try to keep my work refreshing and quirky, always keeping it whimsical and bright. It is filled with layered textures and suave shapes.
My Source of Inspiration I’m inspired by everything around me; daily life is filled with exciting ways and forms that light my creativity-bulbs! I’m fascinated by colours, shapes and textures found in nature and am enchanted by children’s drawings and handwriting.
Typical for designs from
my country
I’m influenced by the eclectic craft and cultural Colombian heritage as well as both Scandinavian and Folk art.
Besides patterns I design nails, clothes, DIY projects, and story illustrations.
