After more than 10 years as a freelance web designer and graphic designer, I discovered pattern design after taking an online course. So far I have been designing patterns and uploading them to microstock websites since January 2019.
My favourite subjects are tropical flowers, cartoon animals, cartoon sunflowers, patterns for kids, seashells, abstract shibori patterns, abstract geometric patterns and patterns for food, restaurants and cafes. I still have many ideas and hope to produce more Malaysian themed patterns with local flora and fauna.
I use Adobe Illustrator, my desktop computer with a mouse, phone camera, sketchpad with pen and pencils for some of the patterns. As a stay at home mom, this career allows me to work at my own time and I can design anything I want. Its wonderful to have people from many countries around the world, appreciate and buy my work.
