Spoonflower is an amazing website that allows you to create your own textile and patterns, sell them and shop for other unique textiles created by artists.  It is truly a fantastic place to play, design and explore pattern....the possibilites are endless...

I found this site many years ago and up until recentley, I never tapped into this source.  There are so many places online now to explore is exciting..

This gave me the idea to play with my own Illustrations.....

This is a play with "Red Hots and Lemon Heads", an original Illustration, done with Pen and Ink, Color Pencil, Charcoal, Cut Paper and Mixed Media. 

My soon to be Mother-in-law has this piece hanging in her ya Barbara!

This is a play with "Lazy Daisy Cake", again an original Illustration done with, Pen and Ink, Color Pencil, Charcoal, Cut Paper and Mixed Media. 

For inspiration there is also an incredible site for the most insanely beautiful wall coverings.

These are a just a few of my favorite designs:

Power Plant / Designed by Dan Funderburgh

City Park/ Designed by Dan Funderburgh

Shore Leave/ Designed by Emily Minnie

This company produces some of the most amazing wall coverings, their use of color and distintive designs are hands down the most inspiring images I have seen in a long time....This goes way beyond your mom and dads floral dining room wallpaper....
