My love of repeat pattern design was the gateway to the world of graphic design and eventually design school. 

Arrow Repeats

Arrow Repeats

Oh, this is one of my very favorites. It began as a stamp with three little arrows, or maybe they were trees. And suddenly they became this lovely texture printed on airy cotton voile. Perfect for a summer party shirt if you are more inclined towards a subdued color palate. This fabric is available for purchase on Spoonflower

Watercolor Dots

Watercolor Dots

Who wouldn't love to set themselves apart from the rest of us with a lovely red polka dot shirt. The pattern evolved from a watercolor study when my new paint set arrived.
