Can't believe I'm going to be spending 3 months in Stockholm working for H&M over the summer! And they're manufacturing my designs, over the moon! Definitely wasn't expecting such an amazing start to the year! πŸ€—πŸŽ‰#surfacepatterdesign #hm #internship

I designed some friendly bacteria for @spoonflower 's "microorganisms" contest. Gesundheit! #spoonflowercontest #spoonflower #surfacepatterdesign #fabricdesign

Quite a bit of progress today, yet still such a long way to go... but I really do enjoy working in gouache again, so that's not all together a bad thing 😊Goodnight everyone βœ¨πŸŒœπŸ’›πŸŒ›βœ¨ #gouache #gouachepainting #gouacheillustration #winsorandnewton #inkonpaper #artistsofinstagram #realism #picame #surfacepattern #surfacepatterdesign #realisticpainting #realismus #realisticart

Getting there

Revisiting some of the urban textures I collected the last time I was in NYC for a new quilt. The streets of New York are already kind of quilt-like with all of their different patches of patterns and colors and textures. I'm excited to chop them up further and piece them back together.

Day 12/100: Cow parsley. This was yesterday's pattern and was supposed to be a super quick one as we are decorating. It actually ended up taking quite a while with all those teeny flowers, so I missed the light to photograph it. Another one to one come today to stay on track with the challenge 😊 #the100dayproject #100daysofnaturepatterns #naturepatterns

My 3 year old daughter has this cute phrase she says every time she makes a mess. "It's a lil bit messy, but a lil bit fun mom." Reminds me a bit of this little ditty right here. #messybutfun #watercolor #watercolorpainting #watercolorflowers #painteditmyself #flowers #surfacepatterdesign #angiemakes #pink #abmlifeiscolorful #abmlifeisbeautiful

Yesterday's purchase 😊

Sheep! Rams!
One day a few years ago I was driving along a gorgeous country road when I saw a group of sheep bunched together all looking up to the sky! I just about drove off the road. It was the strangest thing! This pattern was inspired by those strange sheep! I still wonder what they were all looking at! .

Samples back from @befabbecreative - Printed on linen english union white. Will form part of my new collection "The Bingham" more to follow... #surfacepatterdesign #makeitindesign #patterndesign #surfacedesign #patternobserver #vintagerose #linen #skimmingstones_ #vintagefabric #fabricdesign #surfacepattern #interiors

One of our favorite things on the 4th is our small town parade. I think half the town is in it and the other half watches it. Hoping to see Uncle Sam riding an penny-farthing bike!

Happy weekend everyone #patterndesigner

Spot the BertyB cushion being displayed nicely in this amazing piece made from reclaimed crates! Nice work @peter.c.silvera #reclaim #reclaimedfurniture #reloved #designer #vintage #retro #handmade #furniture #urbanfurniture #print #pattern #surfacepattern #surfacepatterdesign #textiles

Always exciting to see my art or designs printed on something. These are some sample swatches of my most recent patterns, available as fabric, wallpaper and gift wrap on Spoonflower (or go to www.carolinacotoart.com/fabric).

I'm hoping your day shines bright! Thanks to my licensing rep @afreshbunch for posting this yesterday and adding a little sparkle to mine. .
