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!

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

Some members of the Cultivate Art Collective have come together and worked on a beautiful 2015 calendar full of gorgeous artwork. The calendar is now available for purchase and you can get it from the Cultivate Art Collective shop.

Here’s a quick sneak peak of what it looks like:

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:

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 at the show.

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

I should have mentioned this weeks ago but I haven’t had a chance to share it with you until now. My work was featured on Pattern Mix: A Collection of Inspiring Prints by Designers from Around the World by Pattern People. 7 of my designs are featured in the book and I’m super happy about that! ­


The e-book features the best emerging designers in surface design now, showcasing the work of over 100 artists. You will find patterns in a variety of styles including whimsical conversationals, bold geometrics and sophisticated florals. ­There are more than 800 inspirational print designs spread across 200 plus pages of colourful patterns. It’s a real feast for the eyes!

You can purchase the e-book for $24.95 from the Pattern People website. I have a copy of the book and it is beautiful!

I have 3 holiday designs at May 28th. The watches are not too Christmassy that way you can continue to wear your brand new watch for the rest of the year :) I hope you like them!




I’m a little late with this news but you can now find some of my designs on suitcases with iKase. These are the 20 designs that I have with them:


iKase logo

Let me tell you how it works. You select an image, then the image is printed on paper and then it’s placed in the suitcase. Just like this:


You can change your suitcase as many times as you like without having to buy a new expensive case. The best part about it is that you’ll have a suitcase that you’ll see on the baggage carousel from a mile away! Love it!

This is my profile page on iKase. What do you think?


Here’s another bit of news that I forgot to mention earlier. Back in August 2014 I did an interview with the wonderful Cultivate Art Collective. If you are keen on reading more about me and my work please take a look at the Cultivate Art Collective Blog.



We also have a brand new home page with an image of all the members of the Collective. It’s not quite finished yet but it’s looking good already. I love the Collective!




Here’s something I completely forgot to share earlier. I was interviewed by Julie Gibbons the very talented lady behind Tractor Girl. You can read the whole interview here.


Thank you Julie for taking the time to feature me and my work on your blog. I’m so glad that you found me somewhere on the interwebs and decided to contact me. It’s great to know that people are actually looking at your website and that Google analytics is not just made up numbers!




I have been quite neglectful of my website lately (it might have something to do with my 11 month old baby…) So my posts are rather sporadic and seem to come in bunches and then quickly disappear for weeks on end. That’s my life as a mum now!

Just a quick post today to let you know that I’m a member of the wonderful Cultivate Art Collective. I’m very happy to be part of the collective because it will allow me to show my work at 2 shows (at least) early next year.


This is what my profile page looks like:


I continue to be amazed by how much the collective has achieved in its short life and I know there’s so much more to come.

If you are an artist or designer and you’ve been dreaming of getting your work at shows such as Surtex or Printsource, you should definitely consider joining the Collective!

I know I’m a little late with this news (better late than never!) but now my designs with Keka Case are also available as snap on phone cases. These are my 10 designs I have with Keka Case:

iph5_black-and-white-by-Claudia-Owen iph5_blue-roses-by-Claudia-Owen iph5_butterflies-by-Claudia-Owen iph5_fern-by-Claudia-Owen iph5_gentle-whispers-by-Claudia-Owen iph5_happy-flower-by-Claudia-Owen iph5_pink-tears-by-Claudia-Owen iph5_sweet-flowers-by-Claudia-Owen iph5_tiger-stripes-by-Claudia-Owen iph5_wilderness-by-Claudia-Owen



Each of these designs is available for: iPhone 4/4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5s, Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy S4, iPad 2/3/4 and iPad Mini.

Please take a look at all my designs with Keka Case.

Just some time ago I created a profile on Utelier. Just in case you’ve never heard about them, Utelier is a directory, an educational resource and a marketplace combined. It helps new and established designers and retailers find other designers, manufacturers, suppliers and experts worldwide whom they can work with.

This is my profile page:


I really like the look of the website, it’s nice and clean and it looks professional.

I don’t know how much visibility I get on Utelier (I have no analytics and so far I’ve had no new business proposals coming from here) but I guess it doesn’t hurt being everywhere!

If you would like to have a profile on Utelier you can sign up here.

I have more great news today. I’m now a Casetagram designer!

So far I’ve only uploaded 5 designs but I’ve got a lot more designs to include!

Right now I have 0 followers! I’m feeling rather lonely here :( if you have an account with Casetagram hope you can follow me and keep me company :)


Today I have some great news to share with you. You can now use my artwork on watches!

At the moment I have 9 different designs:

May28th Watch by Claudia Owen 1

May28th Watch by Claudia Owen 2

May28th Watch by Claudia Owen 3

May28th Watch by Claudia Owen 4

May28th Watch by Claudia Owen 5

May28th Watch by Claudia Owen 6

May28th Watch by Claudia Owen 7

May28th Watch by Claudia Owen 8

May28th Watch by Claudia Owen 9

The great things about May28th watches is that you can customise your watch to look exactly how you want it. You can select the image you want, material, band, buckle and keeper and the watch arms.

If you would like to create your own watch please go to the May28th website. I hope you have lots of fun designing your watch!

Unfortunately there’s no direct link to my images so you will have to scroll through the other images to get to mine.

I’ve recently created a listing with Printsource New York on their Global Design Database. The database is for people in the textile and surface design industry.

This is what my profile page on Printsource looks like:

Printsource New York Claudia Owen Surface Designer 1

I selected 9 designs to display on my profile page, I don’t know if these designs are my best ones but I definitely enjoyed creating them! I find it hard to select just a few pieces of work because sometimes I just want to include all my work!

If you are looking to find a surface pattern designer you might want to consider using the database to find your next talented designer. Simply go to the Printsource website and click on Global Design Database and start your search. Easy!

Printsource New York is a textile and surface design trade show, which is held three times a year in New York City and the next show is on the 12th and 13th August 2014. How I wish I could go! Not only it would be amazing to go to Printsource but I would love to visit New York!

I have recently started selling my designs on cases for smartphones and tablets through The Kase. The Kase is a French company and they have an online store as well as retail stores in France, Germany and Singapore.

At the moment I have about 30 designs with them but I’ll slowly be adding more in the coming weeks. Each of these designs is available for a number of devices for Apple, Blackberry, HTC, LG, Nokia, Samsung and Sony.

This is what my profile page with The Kase looks like:


Once you select your favourite design then you can select the type of device. I absolutely love the look of this website! So clean and easy to navigate!


I have more good news to share with you today. I’m now a Keka Case designer! As the name suggests Keka Case is all about cases for your iPad and Kindle. The cases are similar to a hardback book cover and they actually use traditional book binding techniques to make the cases.

I currently have 10 designs and each of them is available for Kindle, Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HD 7”, Kindle Fire HD 8.9”, iPad Mini, iPad 1, iPad 2/3 and iPad 2/3 with keyboard.

The other great thing about Keka Case is that you can also personalise the case by adding your name or initials onto the case.

This is my profile page with Keka Case where you can see all the designs that I currently have available.


These are the 10 designs I have available at the moment:

What do you think?

The other exciting thing is that in the next few weeks you’ll be able to get these designs as snap-on fit cases for the Apple iPhone 4/4s/5, Samsung Galaxy Smartphone S3/S4, iPad 2/3/4 and the iPad Mini. But I’ll tell you more about that later :)

If you like any of my designs you can get them from Keka Case.

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.
