One of the things I’m really looking forward to at Alt Summit next week is a pattern design workshop that I signed up for. I am constantly inspired and amazed by all the gorgeous and imaginative prints and patterns out in the world, and relish the thought of being even one tiny step closer to understanding the hows and whys of their creation. I did share one quick post a little while ago about Creating Seamless Patterns in Photoshop…but I’m hoping to learn even more (then I can come back and share it with you guys).
But anyhow, I digress. Today I want to share the work of an incredibly talented surface designer with you. Elizabeth Olwen got in touch this past holiday season to share her pattern designs, and I’m afraid that even though I instantly fell in love with her aesthetic and incredible eye for composition and color, I was too swamped with holiday obligations to do much more than bookmark for later.
Ahh, but today at last, I am finally getting to point you in her direction…so all is not lost! Hooray! First check out Elizabeth’s website for a beautiful sampling of her work, and her blog for regular pattern updates (so inspiring). Then be sure to stop by her Society6 shop where she sells prints, pillows, and other goods, and finally swing on by Wallpapered to see the brand new line of wallpapers they offer featuring her prints! So, so good!
I hope Elizabeth’s work will inspire you as much as it does for me! xo Ez
