My 4-year-old daughter Amelia loves to draw since she was just a toddler. Her creative expression is free and pure and I might be biased but I always knew she had an artistic flair.

Soon enough, her drawing pile grew higher and I had to stop putting them into folders, as they would fill up too fast. Instead I started to wonder what I should do with all her lovely drawings. Some are so beautiful that I wished I had done them!

I decided to turn my daughter’s drawings into surface patterns. I try to stay true to Amelia’s original drawing as much as possible, such as the stokes and her color selections. I add in my interpretation, some more colors and shape and work them into repeat patterns. I found I had so much fun doing this, and Amelia is always excited to see how her artwork transforms into patterns.

My vision is to launch our own label: Born to Create, with home deco products and children’s apparel range using these surface pattern designs collaborated between my daughter and me.
