Hi I’m Ciara and like so many of you out there I love to draw and have been doing so since I was a child.  Fast forward a few years (ok, ok a good few years!) and I discovered surface pattern design and immediately fell head-over-heels in love with all things pattern.

I then took short courses in printed textile design and Photoshop in an effort to combine print creations with digital technology.  I am currently working through the final two modules in the Make it in Design course series, and this has led me here to the world of blogging.

When it comes to blogging (and everything else actually) I have absolutely no idea what I am doing but I would like to use this blog to share images, inspiration, tips and tricks I might have picked up along the way and which I hope will be of interest to you all.
