Meet Shelley

Hello!

Hi, my name is Shelley. I’m an Australian, a tea drinker, and dad joke appreciator. When I’m not waiting for the kettle to boil I’m a mum and a freelance surface pattern designer.

I love creating patterns and designs to adorn products that bring added joy to a person’s day.

About Me

My professional life began as a primary school teacher before focusing on my family, made up of an amazing husband and three fabulous children (including twins!). 

In recent years I have been on my exciting journey into my creative career as a freelance surface pattern designer. I have a deep love of learning and I am passionate about surface design. I have been working hard to realise my dream of working in the industry. 

My work is inspired by classic pattern designs from around the world, and native Australian flora.

How I can help your product based business

Creating the peace and comfort that we need in our homes is even more important at a time when the world feels upside down. That is why I am excited to be creating designs for the home décor, kitchenware and stationery markets. 

To create the perfect pattern for your products we dive deep into your needs. This may be a single custom pattern, a ready-made pattern collection or a complex, fully commissioned collection. 

My design services can include:

  • Mood board construction
  • Technical repeat patterns including straight and half drop patterns
  • Complex patterns with multiple layers
  • Placement prints
  • Border prints
  • Hand drawn or graphic pattern elements and motifs
  • Digital mock-ups of designs on products.

Shelley presented a really intricate collection of patterns which would work beautifully for the homewares market.

Make It in Design, UK

We wanted something unusual, specific colours and design shape. I appreciated the enthusiasm for our project. You really understood what we had in mind. Your relaxed nature was also really welcoming. We loved working with you.
