Surface Pattern Designer and Illustrator. Teresa has been a maker and artist for as long as she can remember. Some of her earliest memories are of going to quilting bees with her grandmother, and helping her mom pick fabrics for sewing and upholstery projects. Teresa developed a passion for beautiful design and vivid color. Always one to jump at the chance to learn a new skill or art technique, Teresa enrolled in a repeat pattern making class a few years ago and discovered the world of surface pattern design. She knew immediately she had found her “thing”. Since then, she spends her time observing the world for new pattern inspiration, sketching, painting and working digitally to create new patterns and illustrations. She’s happiest working with playful patterns and exuberant and exuberant colors that express her appreciation for the beauty that surrounds us every day.
