Create 3 Focal Prints in 3 Weeks

Pattern Design Workshop: Create 3 Focal Prints in 3 Weeks

Hi everyone, 

This is my first time posting a pattern design project on here. I'm really enjoying the learning process and discovering all about surface pattern design.

A little about me, I live in Ireland, I studied graphic design at art college, quite a while ago now! I love to draw, paint, I love lots of different crafts including embroidery, paper crafts, needle felting, hand weaving. I love gardening, being in nature and appreciate all types of wildlife. I've love to work as an illustrator and surface pattern designer.
