Inspiration can come from anywhere. My sketchbook is a great example of thoughts developed from dreams, to chatting with friends at work, old photographs, or flower textures. I fell in love with Fabio the rottweiler. His expression inspired me! Thank you to Richa from from iscriblr.com for allowing me to use an image that caught my eye on her beautiful Instagram page: rakishricha
Drawing this dog has helped me to develop my artistic style. I love simple modern shapes, and I’m driven to create depth. Conveying an emotion or feeling is important to me, so I hope I made you smile too.
This design is created for a tea towel in my Spoonflower shop, and will be available later as an art print. If you are interested in having your pet drawn, I would love to hear from you!

Dog with tennis ball portrait by Tresa Meyer Clark.
Understanding our place in the world is sometimes overwhelming. I think you can aspire to achieve whatever you set your mind to believe, and be who you want to be. This piece celebrates the amazing people who leave a mark in this world, combining the every day with the extraordinary. A whimsical space theme depicting hair dressers, and the cosmic joy of landing on the moon.
I remember when my parents hired a designer to work on the decor for my bedroom when I was in high school. The curtains and the bed covering were a green and rust paisley pattern. At that time, I was not impressed with the moroccan style motifs. How things change when your taste in decor develops over time. Thanks Mom and Dad for having great taste!
This is a surface design project with a paisley pattern using the pointillism technique. The layering of dots imparts texture and depth. Can’t wait to order the fabric and paper swatches in the pink and the brown to perfect my craft. This is just the beginning of creating graphics for this collection. If you are interested in licensing my designs, please leave me a message through my contact page.
