A warm welcome to the Pattern and Design tribe.
Let me introduce myself, I’m Rachelle and I’m really excited to have you here.
A bit about me … ever since I can remember I have always enjoyed being creative. As a child, I was forever making and creating but somehow instead of following my passion I kind of fell into a completely different world and became a sound technician in musical theatre.
I won’t lie, it was fun and social for the time I did it (in my younger years) but it didn’t take long for me to crave more. I really wanted to explore my creative side but I really wasn’t sure how or what I wanted to do.
At that time, surface pattern design was really behind the scenes…..it was something I had never heard of let alone considered doing. But, I was so driven to fill that creative yearning that I researched and explored and as luck would have it, surface pattern design and I crossed paths….
After spending years as a surface pattern designer working across a range categories and companies big and small, I’ve become passionate about sharing my knowledge. Having spent time as a face-to-face educator of design, I wanted to be able to share my knowledge with a larger audience.
I know how important it is to get the right training so you can have a great foundation to build your design knowledge. I was able to make a career from doing something I love and I want to share my knowledge so others can do the same.
So, Pattern and Design and was born so I could teach an every growing community of creatives to follow their passion and learn about surface pattern design.
Thanks for coming to visit and I look forward to chatting soon
