About the Designer: Kelly Ventura
Typically, I choose to work at a very large scale to keep the movement of my brush strokes fluid. I am consistently inspired by the everyday – objects, conversations and surroundings. I find joy in bringing these bits to life with my modern approach and style. The patterns for my 2019-20 planner collection were inspired by the playful color and texture found in nature. Lush foliage in green and blue blossoms dance across the “Hillside” floral planner. Bright spring blooms make up the playful abstract floral of my “Scallops” design. “Current” is a beautiful watercolor cover made of soft, muted tones, and repetitive brushstrokes that reflect the tranquil surroundings and sounds you’d find at the shoreline.
Using fluid and free brushstrokes, vibrant color palettes and bold pattern choices, Michigan-based watercolor artist Kelly Ventura has developed a fresh approach to surface design. Launching her studio in 2012, Ventura has found great joy in the ability to transform her original watercolor paintings into modern patterns and breathe new life into everyday products.
