I'm celebrating summers at the lake with a brand new digital wallpaper download fresh from my studio for iPhones and other smartphones. This mixed media design features two of my favorite places--the beach and flowers.
Don't forget to stay magical!
Enjoy! xo Chris

Diving into the magical botanical trend. Nature is a key inspiration in this design and this botanical has shimmering effects. The blooms have an iridescent quality
that creates a sense of luxury. This design also taps into celestial and mystical influences.

One of my favorite parts of the surface pattern design process is selecting a color story. Today in the studio I’m working on a geo shapes pattern using 3-colors plus the background color. I’m sharing a timelapse video of the early stages of developing the color story for the print using the recolor artwork tool in Adobe Illustrator. In this process video I explore some new options using a new color story while keeping the dark background color constant. #vectorart #abstractart #AdobeIllustrator #processvideo #artprocess #timelapseRead More
Editorial art I created a few weeks ago for International Women's Day to celebrate and honor all those amazing women who make the world better each and every day. I am eternally grateful for the women before me who fought for my rights.
