I have been quietly working away at my surface pattern design portfolio these past weeks.

I’m building it up in preparation of approaching an agent to get my designs licensed. Fingers crossed – that’s the plan.

Just like with painting, you never quite know what the finished design might be as it develops as you’re doing it.

This range, based on a wire fence I saw in Paris (first photograph) has come out all urban, hip-hop!

Or maybe it’s the influence of dark winter days. Perhaps it will literally be sunshine and flowers next week. Have a good weekend.
