Hello there, I’m Anne! I teach a proven step by step process that transforms your sketches and artwork into beautiful and unique repeating patterns. Once you’ve mastered the steps, the sky’s the limit. Turn your designs into fabric or sell them on mugs, notebooks, phone cases, paper products and more. The options are endless. Join me and I’ll guide your learning journey in surface pattern design and deliver the training, encouragement and support you need to succeed in this incredibly exciting field.



The Club

Are you looking to enhance your surface pattern design skills with monthly video tutorials and a supportive, members-only community so that you aren’t learning all by yourself? Join The Pattern Design Club, a monthly membership for surface pattern designers and create everything from fabric to mugs, notebooks, paper and more.

The Class

Do you learn best with a step by step online course? Enroll in From Sketch to Wrapping Paper and learn the fundamentals of surface pattern design in a fun and inspiring new way. You’ll actually make real wrapping paper with your own design on it. It’s exhilarating when the package arrives and you open it to discover your very own, unique designs.

The Coach

Would you prefer to accelerate your learning and take your surface pattern design skills to the next level even faster? Do you dream of building your own surface design business? Contact me for information on private coaching options including one-on-one coaching and small group workshops.

Are you still struggling to get started pursuing your creative dreams? If so, let’s talk about it. Because it’s really about: “One Day or Day One. You Decide.”

Here are the three ingredients that I believe you need to gain the confidence…



I was so inspired by Anne’s Masterclass that I signed up as a Founding Member of The Pattern Design Club as soon as I had access to it!

I am so grateful to have taken Anne’s course. I was laid off and have been trying to find inspiration and direction for a new career path. Anne has truly given me hope that I might find that path through surface design.
