The main daily action is now over on my Instagram account, where I share new paintings, new patterns, time lapses of my work, insights into my studio and inspiration for a creative life! I can’t wait to see you there! Yours florally, Cathrin
At the beginning of 2020 I took some moments to look back at last year and realised what a year it has been in terms of learning. Besides my usual hustle-and-bustle of designing prints and patterns, I made sure to try new things. And it wasn’t really that I had to make sure – the… Read More

The Planner Society licensed my banana leaves print for their ‘Palm Springs Kit’. I love this whole tropical-plants-on-green-vibe! And isn’t cute seeing… Read More
