Designing for Home Decor with Lilla & Margo: The Wrap Up

I can't believe how quickly 5 weeks learning about home decor just flew by with the Make Art That Sells team!! Wow what an interesting experience this was for me. I'm quite comfortable designing greeting cards and editorial illustrations, so to think in terms of 3 dimensional products was a fun and exciting challenge!! I LOVE to learn new things (hence my addiction to e-courses haha!). This class was worth every penny. It pushed me to think and create in new ways that I otherwise would have not thought about. I have taken all the MATS classes and some even twice, but this one really takes the cake!!

It was so inspiring to be creating collections alongside so many other fantastic designers! Everyone's style was really different, and it was fascinating to see us all working on similar themes in different ways. I love the MATS community! The positivity and encouragement throughout is really amazing.

I learned so much about each different substrate: metal, fabric, glass, ceramics and wood. I feel like I have a better understanding now of how to approach each material, what the possibilities are, what the market needs and how to keep expanding on one theme for a longer period of time. Here are my final collections. They are available for art licensing. I hope you like them!!

New Designs in December

I've had a busy month prepping my new website, working on my portfolio and finishing up my work over at The Art & Business of Surface Pattern Design, Module 3. I can hardly believe class is over! I've learned so much this year with all the classes I've taken and have enjoyed the process along the way.

Here is some of my most recent work:

I really enjoyed making these textures and am excited to reveal this new collection called Salty. Salty is available for art licensing. Contact me for details.
