Since becoming a full time mum (2 yrs ago) I’ve been taking a bit of a break from printmaking but a few months ago I started to find time for a slightly different kind of art. And I quickly became addicted to digital pattern making. As an art form it doesn’t need too much space, or make much mess, or need long periods of time devoted to it. So it is much easier to fit into my life at the moment.
So far I’ve created quite a number of patterns and uploaded some of them to Spoonflower (a fabric/wallpaper site) and some to Redbubble (who do T-Shirts, mugs, phone cases and art prints etc). I’m hoping to develop some pattern collections in the future. And I’m planning to re-imagine some of my linocut print designs as patterns too.
My Spoonflower shop is here – http://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/ceccaI’ve only got 4 designs for sale at the moment but lots more show up if you click ‘Designs not for sale’.
My Redbubble shop is here - http://www.redbubble.com/people/cecca-designs I’ve set up a number of patterns plus a couple of my linocuts and a watercolour on there so far.
Here are a few of my patterns so far:
Elephants (green & blue)
Fish (work in progress)
Ducks and frogs in the garden (Teal)
Striped Pigs & Ponies (Peach Melba)
