Hello and Welcome


I’m Stacey and I am a self-taught Surface Pattern Designer and Illustrator.

I work from my home studio, based in Ireland where I live with my 2 little ones and my husband Steve.  I manage a small Etsy shop, at the moment offering abstract watercolour printables for download and I hope to expand to offer more products in the future. I also have a store with Minted, selling my designs on a range of Homewares.

My creative process is varied. I most often begin everything with a hand-drawn sketch, preferring the feel of the pencil to get my ideas out initially. I also dabble in watercolour and can create in both Photoshop and Illustrator. I love to learn new ways of making art and patterns and challenge myself with new mediums.

Most of my inspiration comes from the nature around me.  Growing up in a small town surrounded by green fields, country roads, trees and wildlife, influences my creativity every day.  Beautiful flowers, plants and animals I come across, feature a lot in my art and patterns. I love to use texture in my work and I am drawn to natural and rustic colour palettes. 

This is my space where I can focus a little bit of all my loves, where I can connect to a wider network of creative individuals with amazing talents and where I hope you can find some inspiration and beauty within the pages. Natural Dreamer is the name of my blog where I will be sharing mostly what I am working on, new patterns and art and occasionally some of my other interests, home decor, DIY crafts and vintage inspiration. Keep in touch via my newsletter below, to see what I am up to!

I am interested in creating work for a variety of markets, with a special interest in Home Decor and bolt fabric. If you would like to license any of my current artwork or patterns, or have me create something special for your business, please get in contact. I would love to discuss any potential opportunities with you!

Thanks so much for visiting!
