Introduction to the book from the author:
Welcome to a great adventure in pattern play!
Although pattern design is an ancient technique, today you see patterns everywhere. Look
around your home and you'll find pattern design on everything from wallpaper to clothing to dishes. Patterning may look complicated, but it's actually quite simple to do. I have discovered an easy way to add patterns to any drawing, and am delighted to share the technique with you in this book.
I fell in love with patterning in the summer of 2008, when I discovered the wonderful
world of Zentangle®, an art form developed by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. Since then I have incorporated patterning into my work, and call my new style Zenspirations My passion for lettering, patterning and design has me waking up every morning eager to draw, and I strive to inspire others through my art and inspirational messages. I hope this book helps spark your own love of patterning.
