WELCOME to my ever-evolving collection of surface pattern designs. Concepts are derived from my nature-based photographs, printmaking, collage, digital work, drawing, or from a combination of methods. Each design holds a little story that relates to me relating to nature.

If you are interested in purchasing or licensing surface pattern designs and would like to see a more extensive portfolio, feel free to contact me. Provide your name/company name, website address, contact info., the purpose of your inquiry, and I will provide you with the password to gain access. Thanks for your interest!

FINE ART PRINTS are also available for purchase that directly relate to some of the surface design collections. You will find them posted with associated patterns and are a glimpse into that design’s story. The prints are reproductions of the original art that inspired the concept and created the design. Feel free to contact me for more information.
