I have three publications with Issuu and even though the work is fairly new it’s already starting to look old to me since a lot of things have happened and I have lots of new work to show.

This is one of my publications and it shows some pattern collections I did some time ago:

Here are two other publications with more of my work:

I think that not many people know about Issuu and all the amazing publications you can find there for free! There’s sooooo much to discover! So go ahead and do a search, you’ll be amazed by the publications.

These were my most liked images of 2015 on Instagram

Best Nine for 2015 Claudia Owen Blog

 

2016 for me has been great so far and I’m super motivated to accomplish the goals that I’ve set for myself. Hope the year has been kind to you so far!

Instagram is one of favourite ways to waste time, what’s yours?

Here are some of the photos I recently took at the Australian Museum of Democracy in Canberra.

I’ve been on Instagram for a long time but I’ve been mostly posting baby pictures. So I decided to open a public account where I can share my work and only a few baby pictures.

This is where you can find me @claudiaowenblog

Mooloolaba is one of those places that I always want to visit. And here’s the thing – I hate to repeat myself and go to the same holiday spot, I mean, why would you go to the same place twice when you can be exploring a completely new place somewhere else?

However, there’s something I really love about Mooloolaba and maybe you can see why in these photos below:

Here’s something I should have shared a long time ago. This is my video interview that I did as part of my RAW show in January 2015.

This is my RAW profile. Take a look!

 

My work was featured in the Make it in Design blog as part of the Surtex 2015 preview features they did of previous students of The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design e-course.

This is my Design Juices work feature and interview. I know… I know… I’m late sharing this too but here it is! You can read the whole interview here.

Again, a little late with this news but… My work was featured in the Print and Pattern blog featuring my Surtex flyer and some of the designs that were shown at Surtex.

This is actually my second feature on the Print and Pattern blog :)

In the last two years we have been to Wollongong quite a few times and it’s been wonderful! I really enjoy the drive to Wollongong, the beautiful green hills, stopping in little country towns and nature.

I love stopping at the Sutton Forest Inn, the Moss Vale Hotel, the Cheese Factory in Robertson and this cute coffee shop on Tongarra Road (which is just a house but it reminds me of my grandparents house in the country).

Here are some of the photos I took in our last trip, these are from City Beach in Wollongong. I’ve walked hundreds of times along this beach and even in the middle of the winter it’s a wonderful place to walk along and enjoy.

Brindie is Canberra’s premiere online platform for sharing the work of makers, designers and artisans. If you ever wanted to shop locally Brindie is the place to go as everything on the website is designed or made by someone here in the ACT.

Brindie Logo Featured in Claudia Owen BlogThe name Brindie comes from the combination of the word Brindabellas (our beautiful Mountain range to the west of Canberra) and the word indie, meaning independent, representing all the independent makers, artisans and designers.

Brindie was launched in August 2015 and it’s been a wonderful success and something that local makers really wanted and needed. In the past, if you ever wanted to shop locally you would have had to search through probably hundreds of local Etsy shops hoping to find what you were looking for. But now Brindie has compiled all that information together in one place just for you saving you lots of time. Isn’t that great?

This is Lisa, Brindie’s founder and Canberra girl. She’s the wonderful lady who works really hard behind the scenes to bring you Brindie.

I have a few of my designs on Brindie and hopefully in the new year I will add a few more designs to my collection.

This is my profile page:

Once again, I’m a little late with this news but now Kreo Home stocks four of my cushions on their website. If you love quirky and somewhat unusual home wares then you’ll love Kreo Home. They stock home wares with an edge showcasing talented Australian and international designers.

Here you can see the 4 cushion covers I have with Kreo Home:

Here’s another bit of good news I should have shared earlier, my feature in Tractor Girl. There’s an interview about some of the things I’ve been up to in the last year. The interview it’s a little long but I hope you like it, take a look!

Thank you Julie for featuring me and my work!

Today I wanted to show you some of the holiday designs that I have on my Etsy shop.

New Years card by Claudia Owen for Etsy 1

This card design is inspired by this really cool jacket by @versace_official The model is @michaeljwilliamsss Photographer Zhang Chao.

New Years card by Claudia Owen for Etsy 2 

This card design is inspired by this lovely straight legged pants called Bright Future by @sassandbide The pants make a contemporary alternative to evening gowns and are made from a semi-sheer silk blend. For the card I added a touch of pink to make it a little more girly and fun.

The beautiful photos that you see in the two Christmas cards are by Tracy Lee Photography. Tracy Lee Photography is based in Canberra, Australia.

A few weeks ago I delivered a bunch of new wrapping paper designs at the Handmade Shop in Canberra. These designs are a little more cute than my usual abstract prints but they were lots of fun to put together!

CARDIF also has a retail arm, CARDIF Collective, which is a shop that CARDIF members can sell their creations without having to actually be there.

CARDIF will officially open in February next year but as a prelude to the official opening, the venue is opening up for a special Christmas shopping pop-up from 12 December through to 22 December.
