Bark & Branches

I absolutely loved Bonnie Christine's first class, where I created one of the patterns for this collection. All of the components for this collection were drawn in that class, so if you'd like to see my brainstorming and illustration process, you can click that link!

PATTERN COLLECTION NAME & STORY
The name of this collection is Bark & Branches.

Bark & Branches is a collection that grounds us and connects us with the wisdom of the earth. The wilderness allows us to get lost, daydream, find ourselves, and be one with nature. Trees and all of their parts are filled with history and complex natural patterns. They bear many scars and endure the elements, serving as a model of strength and resilience.
