Hello,

I’m Anneline, I live in England and this blog is about my journey to become a surface pattern designer.  I have always loved pattern, colour, flowers, beautiful textiles and sewing.  I believe that anything is possible and that everything happens for a reason but you can make things happen.  I am doing exactly that by pursuing my dreams.  I am currently enrolled in the wonderful course The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design to help me on my way.  Before the course, I have been learning Photoshop and Illustrator and sketching, painting and sewing in my studio.  I love to travel and my travels through Britian; Europe; America (including Hawaii); Canada and Africa have all influenced my love of flowers and bold use of colour that can be seen in my designs.

We live in a big Victorian house that needs a lot of work but I see it as another opportunity to live out my creativity and am loving the opportunity to make this house a home for me, my hubby and our baby girl.
