Today we are featuring the work of textile print designer Kerrie Cauvin in our ongoing series highlighting the fantastic designers here on the Patternbank Textile Print Design Studio. Based in Sydney, Australia Kerrie has been designing for the apparel industry for over 10 years. Inspired by vintage textiles, nature, amazing colour and digital possibilities, Kerrie loves to explore all forms of media, mixing her distinctive hand drawn quality with digital techniques.

“I love to experiment using hand created artwork, sketches, photos, watercolour/painterly textures mixing them with Photoshop, iPad apps and Illustrator. This allows a very loose and playful approach, embracing “mistakes” and how they produce amazing and interesting shapes and design. On the other hand, I also love vintage florals and quirky conversationals which require a more structured design approach, so my work is really a varied mix of these 2 ways of working. Colour is a big inspiration and I find great examples through nature, catwalks, art and photography.”

Patternbank particularly love her use of colour and bold pattern-making which suits a varied marketplace from women’s fashion, swimwear, stationery and kidswear. See more of her profile page here. The featured design above is Dark Forest and is available exclusively on the Patternbank Studio as are all the designs shown here.
