Freebie Calendar for April!

April is here! And I’m totally late with posting about the calendar Freebie! Sorry about that 🙂  This month’s artist’s name is Onneke! I love her whimsical little birds and motifs, and her clean and modern style.  I met Onneke while participating in The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design course, and I’ve been amazed at her wonderful, emerging talent and growth over the year that I’ve gotten to know her.

“April” by Onneke

About Onneke:
“My name is Onneke and I am a surface pattern designer and illustrator. I’m Dutch but have lived in the UK for the last 10 years. I make illustrations, patterns, personalised prints (like family trees, birth and wedding prints) and I also design cross stitch kits.
I have always believed that it’s the small things that make us happy. Like letters in airmail envelopes with stamps from far away places. Cups of jasmine tea. Old books and vintage wallpapers. The sound of an old typewriter and the smell of ink. I love simple strong images that become like symbols and I love birds, and trees, and my little home sweet home. I have two beautiful children who inspire me with their brilliant ideas and always remind me of what is really important. When I’m not in the studio you can find me on the beach, out in the fields, or at my messy table with my sketchbook or a little cross stitch project.”
Her quirky detail:  “I have two lovely cats who always join me in my studio. One likes to sit as close to my computer as he can get and is known as the Supervisor.”
Her favourite Designer: “My favourite surface pattern designer and illustrator is the amazing Ingela Arrhenius from Sweden. I’m also a big fan of the work of Lotta Jansdotter.”
You can download April HERE or clicking on the image above, and remember, it can be printed as big as an A3 format (42×29.7cm / 16.5×11.7in). And please take a look at Onneke’s website by clicking HERE.
