Graphic, Web and Pattern Design



Spring Brings New Beginnings

Hi, my name is Sudha. I am a freelance Graphic & Web Designer living in Seattle and the mother of 2 adorable teen boys.

Thank you Bonnie, for teaching these classes. I came across your class early this year and fell in love with surface pattern design. Finally, I feel I have found my passion. I have learned a lot from all your classes and still refer back to them as needed. I have always loved color and patterns in nature, on textile and other products. I am completely enthusiastic about making these patterns and cannot stop thinking about it.

This pattern collection is dedicated to my new found passion, which is like the spring season, like a new beginning. The inspiration for these ideas came to me as I was walking in my neighborhood on a beautiful Northwest spring morning. That morning, the sun was sparkling and clear after a night of rain and everything looked new, bright and fresh as if nature had a new beginning.

Using my own images I created an inspiration board to reflect my theme.



These are few of my sketches.


It took a long time to create vectors for my drawings in Illustrator.


Since they were so many vector drawings, it was confusing in the beginning until I combined them together into different groups for different patterns.


Experimenting with colors was a lot of fun! All the colors were taken from my own collection of nature photographs.


Then it got really interesting as I started creating my first pattern collection.

Thank you again Bonnie for teaching us these wonderful classes.
