Finding that signature style

I had a lot of fun creating this piece. Nothing is more satisfying than a folk floral! I've been going crazy designing new pieces for my new website and shop and to be honest I couldn't be happier. This is the most personal work I've ever produced. There is this wall artists and designers have when they quit the corporate design world and the instructions of a creative director- like a creative identity crisis. This is where you keep making work until you find your "signature style". For me it was overspending way too much on art supplies, making many pieces that were kind of me but didn't really reflect me, which I'm guessing is why I was having a hard time selling my art.
After having an awful time trying to sell my artwork at craft shows and online I went back to the drawing board and delved a little deeper as to what inspired me and my personal tastes were.
  I decided to start designing wall art and patterns again. I'm a pattern designer first and foremost and I love art that is fun, happy and colourful. Since I did those things the designs have been coming out of me nonstop. I hope you enjoy them as well! Since the holiday season is just around the corner these will not be available until the new year in my shop. Should anyone have a request earlier please don't hesitate to contact me by email!
