Meet Mary

Hi, I’m Mary, a surface pattern designer from the Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.

My designs are modern, optimistic and playful, and they reflect my influences from traditional motifs, nature, architecture, abstracts and everyday objects. I love working on diverse briefs to provide a unique vision and pursuing projects that spark my curiosity and creativity. I combine handdrawn or painted elements with digital elements, and I play with different layers of textures and colours. Photoshop is my goto software, but I’m also expanding my knowledge of Illustrator. I’m always keen to learn new skills and techniques to enhance my craft.

If you want to license or purchase some of my designs, or to collaborate with me, please get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you.

I absolutely love seeing my designs come to life on products, and I would love to help you make your creation something really special.

If you would like to work with me, please get in touch.

Turning Inspiration into Art

Curious about how I work my magic? Let me take you behind the scenes of my creative process.

Inspiration Strikes

It all begins with a moment of inspiration. Whether it's the way sunlight filters through leaves or the laughter of children playing in the park, I'm always on the lookout for those magical moments that spark my imagination.

Playful Variations

Designing patterns is like solving a delightful puzzle. I play around with different elements, arranging and rearranging them until they click into place. Each variations brings me closer to the final design.

Sharing the Joy

Once the design is complete, I can't wait to share it with the world. Whether it's licensing for a client's project or offering it in my shop, there's a sense of fulfillment in knowing my art will bring joy to others.

And then? I do it all over again. Because the journey never ends, and there's always another moment of inspiration waiting to be transformed into art.
