hey there!

I’m Rachelle

I’m an Australian surface pattern designer and educator who has a bit of an obsession for creating florals and anything to do with nature.

I love helping people learn how to create successful designs so they can build a business they love…just like me!

I got started way back in the year 2000 when after working in musical theatre for a number of years (backstage not onstage…I’m too much of an introvert) I knew I needed to pursue something that was more creative. Although at the time surface pattern design was not widely known about like it is now (no Instagram back then) I somehow stumbled across it and loved it!

After working within the textile industry for around a decade as a surface pattern designer I had my first child and I decided to quit my 9 to 5 job. I wanted to focus on building a business where I get to work from home and have the flexibility to fit in with my family’s needs. Since then I have created designs for clients all over the world and get to be creative and do something I love every single day.

I’ve also had the opportunity to teach surface pattern design modules to students at a prominent university where I discovered a love for sharing my skills with others.

So, in 2017 I decided that I wanted to create a platform where I could share my knowledge and Pattern and Design was born. I now get to help other people learn the essential foundation skills required to create successful pattern designs so they can build a business of their dreams.

Let me help you get
