Holly Helgeson

Artist Bio

Holly says: Ever since I can remember, I have been drawing and designing patterns. When I was a child, I used to impatiently wait for the BIG catalogs to arrive at Christmas time so I could design dresses for the models in the books. However, my true love for fabric and pattern design came after I graduated high school and went to work in a design studio. I was privileged to work with many amazing women, all who inspired me and taught me about patterns, repeats and color.

If I am not drawing, you will typically find me with my nose in the latest fabric/pattern book, or sitting at my computer reading pattern blogs and writing for my blog. Otherwise, I will be searching out antique stores and flea markets with my hubby to see what kind of wonderful vintage fabric treasures I can find. I just can't pass up a piece of vintage fabric or lace. I swear I was born in the wrong era... my passion is truly '30s and '40s design! Well, to be honest, I could have been born in the '50s and '60s too. Mid Century Modern design is so yummy! And....I digress.
