After some brainstorming around where I’d like to take POSTFLORAL, I’m excited to share some new restructuring. I’ll be posting around a monthly theme to better contextualize my work and provide a platform for research and finding inspiration. Moodboard Mondays will happen around this theme and at the end of each month I will be posting a fully realized Pattern Story (more to come on that :)) on Pinterest, with all original work, photography, and art direction.
I’ll be working to collaborate with interesting folks/brands, because I believe pattern can’t exist in a vacuum. There are so many opportunities to push surface pattern and learn from others in their own practice.
Getting started on this beautiful Memorial Day off, which I’m incredibly grateful for, is June’s theme – ALL EYES ON ICELAND. I’m taking a two week trip in the next few days to one of my favorite places in the world! This month I’m talking all about pattern, travel, and mail art. What are best practices for creating work on the go? What are the best tools and documentation styles to truly capture a location? How can I really interpret a landscape into pattern design?
I’ve found some awesome inspiration to kick off June’s Pattern Story all around travel diaries and mail art! There are so many amazing ways to capture and share your travels. Bringing the right creative tools to paint en plein air or quickly sketch a passing scene are so important for documenting a trip in a way that makes sense to you. Travel diaries are so personal, but can provide a truly unique insight into the travel experience. It’s interesting to see how these travel diaries translate into a shared medium. Snail mail has infinite potential to help your personal experience reach across oceans in a way social media can’t sometimes.
I’m excited to share my partner for June later this week, that will really exemplify the importance of a shared experience. Stay tuned and check out the POSTFLORAL Travel Diaries + Mail Art Moodboard!
