I genuinely hope to help people feel better in their living and working spaces by designing patterns and products that brighten these environments, hence my business name of Victoria Bright. Our direct environments are so important to our well being! I used to work as a marriage and family therapist - bottom line is that I want to help people to feel and do their best in life. Art and design plays a significant role in that endeavor.
I am a designer of textiles for interiors and apparel; I license and sell my pattern work to manufacturers and exhibit at trade shows like Surtex, PrintSource and Blueprint in NYC. Inspiration for me can be the most obscure and tiny thing… my husband says I dawdle when we are out and about because I am focusing so intently on my surroundings, especially if we are out on a hike in the mountains. He can easily outpace me by a mile and I won’t notice until I finally look up! Colors and shapes intrigue me the most and I spend countless hours experimenting with combinations of them. I am drawn to modern, vintage modern and contemporary design, especially in geometric form. Usually I start with sketches on graph paper. Sometimes I paint and take the results into the digital space for further manipulation. Sometimes I start with a shape and a set of colors and follow where they lead within Photoshop or Illustrator.
I enjoy working in the home textiles, apparel and stationery markets. My ideal client is energetic, color-driven and is open to pushing the realms of possibility sometimes. I am not afraid to experiment in design for different or unusual outcomes. I have a heart for eco-conscious materials and love to work within that space as well.
Great communication is key to any successful outcome. I bring a friendly personal touch to every project and am detail-minded.
In January of 2019 my wallpaper line launched at the Dallas Market Center at the Total Home and Gift Market. This line was exclusively designed by me for Kim and Anthony Chaumont of SBC Decor. It is intended for commercial and residential use and the BEST part is that the wallcovering is available on an eco-savvy LEED certified substrate for those interested in utilizing such products.
