I thought sharing the fabulous work of Jen Skelley with you today would brighten your day. With a refreshing colour palette of lime, turquoise, coffee and raspberry Jen cleverly creates a modern yet retro vibe to her surface pattern designs. Simplistic shapes and clean lines result in contemporary illustrations with a distinctive hand drawn quality. I love how Jen combines lots of different variations of the same image together to create a placement print with the effect of an overall repeat.
Little birds in cages, heavily patterned hot air balloons and Russian dolls give Jen's work a folk art feel and combined with cute little phrases her designs would fit beautifully into a lucky child's bedroom.
