Meet Our Newest Designer | Jessica Nielsen

7.jn-jessicanielsenJessica Nielsen is an illustrator and surface pattern designer who loves to make bold and bright coloured designs. Most patterns are inspired by shapes and colours in nature (an endless source of inspiration) which she then translates into her signature graphic style with strong shapes.

Moodboards and hand-drawn sketches are the basis of her pattern designs. Usually she uses her sketches / experiments as inspiration for digital drawings / designs, sometimes she scans the original sketches and enhances them on the computer.

Her patterns have been licensed for wrapping papers, pillow covers, tents, cards and gift tags. Visit Jessica’s website for more of her lovely work.

We love Jessica’s clean, crisp Scandinavian style and think it will be a perfect compliment to the early summer season. We’ll debut her collection, Waterland, at Quilt Market in May!
