Hi, I’m Aleks Byrd. I’m an illustrator and pattern designer. I’ve always loved creating things with color and pattern. Since I was little, I was sewing, knitting, drawing, and painting- anything I could make with my hands. I’m inspired by places and environments; what makes a place unique. This comes from my love of traveling to new places. How to represent a moment, an experience, or a place is what I find inspiring.
