BLUE PRINT 2018 - artabella collective

Artabella Collective are a group of seven international designers. Although their artistic styles are diverse, they all have a common passion for surface pattern design. They are Michelle Grace and Claire Elsworth from the UK, Deane Christiansen from Canada and Shelley Seguinot, Erica Ilene, Diana Kelley and Amber Shaw from the USA. Initially making connections through the amazing online community of surface pattern designers, they formed friendships through courses including Make it in Design, MATS Bootcamp and the Roost Tribe. They soon discovered that they had shared ambitions and an incredible drive to succeed which is happily accentuated by the support of one another. Artabella Collective will be making their trade show debut at Blueprint Show 2 in May and are excited to make contacts and forge lasting professional relationships into the foreseeable future. They offer a broad range of highly commercial patterns and placements for every occasion and are so happy to have the opportunity to promote their amazing artwork to clients on a global scale.
