The Person Behind the Pattern



to say we were excited when we stumbled upon the crazy talented Kelly Ventura at SURTEX® 2014 would be a gross understatement. her booth radiated with beautiful, soft, modern, and sophisticated patterns that we simply couldn’t pass up!

Kelly is an adorable midwestern girl with a brilliant gift for pattern design. making her way from Michigan to New York, she found her niche working as a surface/product designer. now back in Michigan with her husband and two young boys, Kelly thrives as an independent artist who licenses her work to a variety of companies with diverse design styles and product categories.

we are over the moon to partner with her and host a collection of her lovely designs in our shop!
