“The magic of pattern occurs regardless of effort and it is magic and musical — it is infinite variations on the same theme.” Walter Inglis Anderson

I've always been drawn to pattern. My sketchbooks are full of the same marks repeated over and over and over. Patterns are the basis for all human order. Patterns are the drum beat for the bigger story. Repetition is merely decoration. But pattern is so much more. It grows, moves, evolves.

About Me

Kate Thomas

I started life over at 27. I was working in the corporate offices of a bank going nowhere. I left my job and went back to get my second undergraduate degree in Graphic Design at Mississippi State University. I had not taken an art class since I was eleven. I didn’t even know there were different weights of pencils.

I did this because life is too short to not spend it doing what you want to do. You only get one shot at it. I feel like I got my life back. I’ve never been happier.

I live in Jackson, Mississippi with my cat Weezie. Little Things Studio is my business where I sell prints, journals, stationery, etc. My amazing mother Cynthia is my momager who manages my Etsy shop. Email me – hi@patternsbykate.com
