Welcome to class on how to create unique abstract patterns in Photoshop inspired by everyday textures that you encounter in your daily life. Things like tree bark can be converted into a cool and funky pattern, or that cobbles tone street you walk through everyday can be turned into this cool seamless pattern.

This class is good for beginners as well as advanced designers.

Hi. My name is Marta Berk. I'm an illustrator/designer based in New York and creator of whimsical patterns, quirky lettering, and cute characters. I love colors, texture, and fun twists on old compositions. My artwork has been licensing on some amazing products, from stationery to rugs, giftware, and more. I feel lucky to be able to do art for a living and can't imagine doing anything else.

Feel free to follow me on social media and check out my other works.
