I have always had a love and fascination for patterns and textures. My art major work in yr 12 was based on a colourful swirling watercolour design/pattern. I love the graphic vector patterns I encounter as a graphic designer. That's were my love of ties and wallpaper comes from. I especially love retro patterns, paisley, hippy, henna designs, rainbow etc. Anything bright!
