I'm Sareka! Welcome to my little space on the web. I'm excited you are here and I have a lot of stuff to share! First let me tell you a bit about me. I have always had a passion for art, design and making pretty things. That passion has lead me to the wonderful world of Surface Pattern Design. My style can be described as bold, colorful and unique with a tribal flare. I enjoy seeing my patterns on home decor, stationary and gifts. My hopes is that my patterns will bring joy and imaginations into the homes of many.
I grew up in Detroit, MI and later studied Graphic Design at Bowling Green State University, in Bowling Green, OH. After moving back to Michigan I worked in a print shop while doing freelance work. I had no idea this whole world of surface pattern design was out there. After running into some surface pattern design websites while browsing the web one day, I fell in love with the idea of having my designs on product and begin to emerge myself in this surface design world. I have taken classes at the Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design, and created a portfolio of beautiful prints and patterns.
My designs are currently available for purchase on society 6 and Red Bubble and I will be opening my own online shop in the next few months. I am also available for freelance work and licensing my designs.
