My name is Christine Matthies. I'm a german based designer with a background in graphic design. After studying communication design in my hometown Berlin I moved to Frankfurt am Main. After working five years in the fashion industry creating pattern for eyewear and fabric I started my own business in surface pattern design last year. I mostly design for home, stationary, fashion and textiles. My style is sophisticated and precise while at the same time it's fresh, charming and delicate. I love to combine detailed and realistic drawings with abstract shapes and textures using everything from pencil to watercolor.
