Here’s another bit of news that I should have shared weeks ago. Back in March I did the Canberra CommUnity Twilight Markets located in Fyshwick.

This is what my stall looked like:

Here I am, happy and excited to be at the markets! And as you would expect, I’m wearing my own leggings :)

Ivette was my assistant for the day (She’s also wearing one of my scarves :) ). Thank you for all your help!

This is Janet from In My Element Glass Design my wonderful neighbour for the day.

I was also displaying some the cards from Venerate, which is my other Etsy shop where I sell handmade cards.

I can’t wait for the day when I can have my own shop and have a permanent place where I can display my work.

It was a really fun day and I look forward to doing a market again (once it gets a little warmer).

I should have shared this news weeks ago but you can now find a number of my designs at Handmade Canberra!

This is what my first delivery of goods to the shop looked like:

Claudia-Owen-Shop-Handmade-Canberra-5

I delivered all kinds of goodies including: leggings, scarves, throw pillows, clipboards, ring binders, pencil cases, and journals.

Claudia-Owen-Shop-Handmade-Canberra-4 Claudia-Owen-Shop-Handmade-Canberra-3 Claudia-Owen-Shop-Handmade-Canberra-2 Claudia-Owen-Shop-Handmade-Canberra 1

The shop is located in City Walk, 20 Allara Street, Canberra. So if you are in Canberra or you are visiting Canberra make sure you go and take a look. The shop has an amazing collection of work bursting with the finest Australian design.

Now that Surtex is out of the way I’ve had some time to update my About page and My Work page. I’ve added more information about all the work that I’ve been doing so that it reflects all the things I’ve done over the years and to show the kind of experience that I have.

I also added photo galleries of my work, like the one below, to include some of my recent collections.

I think I could still organise sections better but I guess this is a good start!

Please take a look and let me know what you think :)

Surtex 2015 has ended! There’s so much work that goes into preparing for a show like Surtex and it’s all done in just a few days! It’s almost like a wedding, you prepare for the big day for a whole year and then in a matter of hours your wedding day is all over :(

This was my first year exhibiting at Surtex with Cultivate Art Agency and I hope I can do it all over again next year! I already have lots and lots of ideas about the type of work that I want to produce. Now all I have to do is schedule enough time during the year to create lots of beautiful new art!

Here are a few product mock ups I did for Surtex:

Let’s hope next year I get to go to the show in person!

I love dinnerware and I dream of having my own collection of dinnerware one day. For Surtex I prepared a few dinnerware mock ups in the hope that I can get a manufacturer interested in one of these designs. Fingers crossed!

There’s only 1 day to go until Surtex! Cultivate Art Collective and Cultivate Art Agency will be in booth 222 so make sure you stop by and say hello!

Here’s another sneak peak of what you’ll see at the show:

Artists featured at Surtex are:

Susanne Kasielke, Angela KilpatrickAshley LoteckiGabriella Buckingham, Cyndi PfeifferBetsey Hodson, Claudia Owen, Natalie Williamson, Irene Chan, Susan K. Weckesser, Sophie Brabbins, May Leong, Sherry LondonRhiannon Connelly, Adrienne Vita, Este Macleod and Amy Reber.

As part of my Surtex portfolio I’ve created a number of product mock ups to help people visualise what the designs would like on products. Here are some of the mock ups I made:

In preparation for my debut at Surtex I have been updating my online design gallery. I have at least 80 design collections in my design library at the moment and I have lots more designs to add in the coming weeks. If you are a manufacturer or art director and would like to take a look at my design gallery please fill out the form here and I will give you access to it. The designs on my online gallery are available for licensing and outright purchase.

Here’s a small sample of what you can find in my design gallery:

Yes, I’m finally going to Surtex! This is the first time that I will have my work at Surtex and I’m very happy about that! Unfortunately, I don’t get to go in person this year but sending my work it’s a dream come true!

Surtex is the premier tradeshow devoted to selling and licensing original art and design for all types of products including stationery, giftware, toys, publishing, home wares and lots more. It is anticipated that there will be around 6,000 people in attendance from 49 countries. So it is huge!

The show will be held in May 17-19, 2015 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center New York City.

This is my Surtex flyer:

Claudia Owen Surtex 2015 flyer

Surtex is the type of show that every designer dreams of exhibiting at and having the chance to speak to businesses and manufacturers from all around the world.

If you are going to Surtex make sure to visit booth 222. My work will be represented by Cultivate Art Agency and I will have my best prints and patterns at the show.

So my first RAW show was last Friday and I’ve finally had a few spare minutes to write about the show and share a few pictures. First of all, I have to say that I loved the experience! I loved that I was able to show my work to a large group of people and talk to them about what I do and get feedback.

To prepare for the show I had a small set up in a corner of the house with everything that I was going to be showing on the night. It was very useful and it was great practice to help me work out how I would display all my work.

Claudia-Owen-RAW-Show-Set-Up-2

Here’s my wonderful assistant for the day. She helped me with the set up and with all kinds of things on the lead up to the show. If you are doing the show, make sure you have someone help you with the set up on the day. It took us around 2 hours to set it up for the night!

Claudia-Owen-RAW-Show-Set-Up-1

Busy setting up for the show. You know what I love the most about this photo is that I’m surrounded by bright colours and patterns. This is exactly how I have imagined my life and this is exactly how I want to spend the rest of my life!

Claudia-Owen-RAW-Show-Booth
Here I am, happy and a little nervous, as the doors of the venue were about to be open to the public!

Claudia-Owen-RAW-Show-My-Dress-2

The dress I’m wearing is also my own design :)

Another thing you’ll probably need for the show is a big car. I had a relatively large set up and I also had large pieces of furniture. I drive a small car (it’s a little Honda Jazz) and crazy me thought I could fit my entire booth in my car… Well… That was never going to happen! I could barely fit all my things in my husband’s car and he has a twice as much storage space in his car! I should have taken a photo of our fully packed car so you’ll just have to imagine a car fully packed to the roof! I could not see a single thing through the rear view mirror! And my sister’s face, who was sitting on the passenger seat next to me, was right up against the front windscreen!

Claudia-Owen-RAW-Show-Onstage-1

And this, the most dreaded part of the show. Getting onstage! It wasn’t that bad, just a few simple questions but for someone who isn’t used to public speaking it’s a little nerve wrecking!

Claudia-Owen-RAW-Show-Booth-1

Claudia-Owen-RAW-Show-Booth-4

Claudia-Owen-RAW-Show-Booth-7

I also included a number of little tags with a short description about the work I was presenting. I wanted to give my display a more personal feel and I wanted to make sure that people knew that I’m designing each and every single one of these pieces.

Claudia-Owen-RAW-Show-Booth-3

Claudia-Owen-RAW-Show-Booth-2

Claudia-Owen-RAW-Show-Booth-6

At the show I was exhibiting some of my latest collection of work which included silk eco-friendly scarves, ring binders, folders, pencil cases, coasters, three quarter leggings, journals, mugs, clipboards, wrapping paper and cushions.

Claudia-Owen-RAW-Show-Booth-5

There’s just one problem now. Now all I can think of is which show or market will I do now? There are a few local options that I need explore and I’m certain that in the next few weeks I’ll be doing a show somewhere :)

All of these designs are now on my brand new Etsy shop.

Today I wanted to thank the talented Jiawa Liu from Closet Voyage who took these beautiful images of my scarves.

Claudia-Owen-Scarf-Photography-by-Jiawa-Liu-from-Closet-Vogage-1 Claudia-Owen-Scarf-Photography-by-Jiawa-Liu-from-Closet-Vogage-2 Claudia-Owen-Scarf-Photography-by-Jiawa-Liu-from-Closet-Vogage-3 Claudia-Owen-Scarf-Photography-by-Jiawa-Liu-from-Closet-Vogage-5

She did a wonderful job styling the scarves and what I like about it the most is that given that we are in the middle of a hot summer here in Australia the scarves have been beautifully styled for this hot weather. It really shows you how versatile a scarf can be – they are not only good for winter to help you keep warm but in summer they can be a gorgeous accessory.

I now have all these scarves in my Etsy shop.

I’ve just added two silk scarves to my Etsy shop – Black Symmetry and Symmetry Scarf.

Black Symmetry Silk Scarf By Claudia Owen 2 Black Symmetry Silk Scarf By Claudia Owen 3 Black Symmetry Silk Scarf By Claudia Owen 4 Black Symmetry Silk Scarf By Claudia Owen 5

I think black makes everything looks so much more elegant and if your style is simple and classic then you’ll probably love this design.

Symmetry Silk Scarf By Claudia Owen 2 Symmetry Silk Scarf By Claudia Owen 3 Symmetry Silk Scarf By Claudia Owen 4 Symmetry Silk Scarf By Claudia Owen 5

I love geometric designs and I love to design them. This design is clean and elegant featuring 4 beautiful colours.

The silk is beautifully soft and gentle to the touch. It’s also nice and thick without being too heavy or too thin – just the perfect thickness. The colours are vibrant and full of life.

All dyes used in the making of this scarf are GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) approved and eco friendly.

The scarves are square and they measure 39.4×39.4 Inches or 100×100 Centimetres.

Take a look at my Etsy shop and let me know what you think!

In preparation for my debut at Printsource I have been updating my online design gallery. I have at least 120 designs in my design library at the moment and I have lots more designs to add in the coming weeks. If you are a manufacturer or art director and would like to take a look at my design gallery please fill out the form here and I will give you access to it. The designs on my online gallery are available for licensing and outright purchase.

Here’s a small sample of my work:

Here are some images from Cultivate Art Collective and Cultivate Art Agency stand at Printsource.

I think it looks good! And I’m so happy to see everyone’s work on display. We’ve all been working hard for months to get to this point.

If you are going to Printsource make sure to visit Stand A17. My work will be represented by Cultivate Art Agency.

Tomorrow is the big day and I can’t wait! I wish everyone has a very successful show and I hope it brings lots of new opportunities. Best of luck everyone!

It’s strange when you find yourself looking at print trends online and you actually find your work featured! It’s so cool and a great surprise! Here’s the Pattern People blog post:

My image is the rectangle image behind the model.

There’s only 1 day to go until Printsource New York! Cultivate Art Collective and Cultivate Art Agency will have their Printsource debut on January 13th 2015. I’m super excited!

I have just updated my Printsource listing and this time I have added some of my latest work and this is what it looks like right now:

I think it’s a nice improvement from what I previously had and I’m happy with it :)

If you are going to Printsource make sure to visit Stand A17. My work will be represented by Cultivate Art Agency and I will have over 100 prints.

In preparation for Printsource January 13-14 in New York I’ve decided to update the ad I have on the Print and Pattern blog with a Printsource ad.

This is what it looks like:

Claudia-Owen-Print-and-Pattern-Ad-December-2014

If one person came to see my work at the show because of this ad, I would consider this ad a success :)

If you are going to Printsource make sure to visit Stand A17. My work will be represented by Cultivate Art Agency and I will have over 100 prints.

Yes, you read it correctly. I’m going to Printsource! This is the first time that I will have my work at Printsource and I’m super excited about that!

Printsource is the premier market for surface and textile design in the USA and it is the main resource for surface and textile design for America’s major manufacturers and retailers. The show covers many industries including men’s, children’s and women’s apparel, bed and bath, kitchen and tabletop, paper goods and stationery, wall coverings, window fashions as well as other surface and textile design applications.

The show will be January 13 and 14, 2015 at the Metropolitan Pavilion 125 West 18th Street, NYC

This is my Printsource flyer:

I’m feeling optimistic and I’m hoping I will have a successful first show. Let’s do this!

I'm a surface pattern designer and I love to create patterns for a variety of applications such as wallpapers, fabrics, rugs, stationery and home wares. In here you will find a small sample of my work.
