A SURFACE PATTERN DESIGNER,
ILLUSTRATOR AND FINE ARTIST
Hi, I'm Eva Catharina Deweerdt
So glad you're here and staying long enough to read this.
My creative journey started when I was still a child. I grew up in a small village in West-Flanders between cows & fields.I spent hours in my father's painting studio watching him carefully put every brushstroke on the canvas. Soon I got my first set of paints and brushes to make my first paintings become a fact.
I knew for a long time that I wanted to spend my professional career by making beautiful things for others. I graduated as a Plastic Arts teacher and later on as a graphic designer. I noticed that these 2 weren't enough to live up to my dream.
In 2017 I started taking any lesson I could get my hands on in surface pattern design. I also advanced myself in the art of watercolour- and qouachepainting. And now I mostly use these painting techniques in my illustrations and pattern designs. Now I've created hundreds of patterns and could hardly stop designing at the end of every working day, I knew this was what I wanted to do all my life.
At the moment I live and work in my beloved Bruges. When I'm not in my studio (working on a design or illustration or shipping an order) you can find me sniffing around in an antique shop, treasure hunting at a local flea market, enjoying gardening in the greenhouse or communing with nature.
In my free time, I travel with my love and 3 girls through Europe in our @camperbaby . Along the way I get inspired by fauna & flora and all the little things that make people happy. I use this inspiration for future pattern collections.
Currently, I’ve had the honour to work with several brands happy to collaborate with my artwork. Getting back to my roots, unfolding my painting & illustration skills, my passion for pattern is my present journey. I’m honoured to have you along for the ride.
