In case you missed it (sign up for the email list here to stay up to date on the latest!), I launched my first ever home collection of pillows and trays two weeks ago. 

After over a year of taking classes, doing research, & ultimately creating a portfolio of close to 100 patterns (!!!), I’ve turned my favorites into the CUTEST & HAPPIEST throw pillows and trays. Patterns are something I’ve been obsessed with since I was a kid (while most people were playing the Sims or something, I was designing patterns on Microsoft paint), so you could say this collection has been in the works since I was about 10. Back then, I'd print the patterns on printer paper and use them as binder covers, drawer liners, picture frame borders, cards, and every DIY project imaginable. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would one day be creating patterns for a living and having them printed onto PILLOWS AND TRAYS. Needless to say, it’s been beyond cool to bring this lifelong love of pattern making into my art world.

I thoughtfully created every pattern by combining various original gouache, acrylic, and watercolor paintings together. Every single flower and butterfly was part of an original illustration. You might even be able to spot some of the flowers in the art prints!

You can shop the collection here. I hope that the pillows and trays bring you the same sense of joy as my art!
