Hi There. Thanks for joining me!

First pattern
Here’s my very first pattern! Not TOO awful, right?

I’m Jen, a stay-at-home mom who is passionate about surface pattern design. I love patterns and just can’t get enough!

One of my first memories is of visiting a design store with my mom and trying to steal one of the wallpaper swatch books so I could take the ‘pretty pictures’ home with me. (Luckily my mom caught me before I made it out the door)

Years later when I became a stay-at-home mom, I quickly discovered that the only way I would survive the craziness of parenthood was to find a hobby that was mine and only mine. Luckily, a dear friend (another Jen) suggested I take a surface pattern design class thru Skillshare. (I think she was tired of hearing me talk pattern)

Once I made my first pattern, I was hooked. Since then I have experimented and built tons of patterns, and have had a blast learning everything I can about the topic.

When I started this blog my plan was to share my experiments and use this space as a place to catalogue my design work. Since then it has morphed into something much bigger then that. Now I use it as a platform to share the work of my fellow designers and to support and empower members of our surface pattern design community.

If you’d like to learn more about my decision to start this blog, please read my post on vulnerability.

 

And if you have any ideas for collaboration, or would just like to talk pattern, feel free to reach out! I love hearing from you!

Keep designing,

Jen
