So you want to get to know me?

Hey, I'm Ashleigh, a self taught watercolour artist who took a surface pattern design course and instantly knew - this is it! I was hooked, and I've been turning my paintings and sketches into repeat patterns ever since.

I started out as a hands-on maker in 2017, hand painting mugs and fluffy cups for gifts which organically grew to include earrings, ring cones and more! After a few years I discovered I could digitise my artwork to be printed onto the mugs improving quality and saving time. This led me to surface
pattern design - a whole world of possibility I never knew existed and I have fallen in love.

When I'm not painting and working on my art, you'll find me at home with a coffee hanging out with my husband and our two beautiful children here in the Wairarapa - New Zealand.

We love nature walks, colouring in, puddle jumping, gardening, cooking, and heading to the playground together. We live in a beautiful area full of nature with native birds in our garden, farm animals down the road, and a reserve not far from home.
