Hello! welcome, you are visiting us from Muy MajoBV blog from the enthusiastic and talented MaJo BautistaV.
I am Rosie Martinez-Dekker Co-founder and creative director of Believe Creative Studio established in 2011.
I am a Mexican designer based In Almere The Netherlands.
I am thrilled and proud to be the curator of this Bloghop, which is the way me and other 51 designers from around the world wanted to celebrate the 2013.
We are using Emerald pantone color of the year as a main color for all the collections to create some unity, which is also a great way to see how each artist interpret both the color and the Theme : "Let's Fly"
My style is free, whimsical and full of color. I mainly focus in designing for children, teens and babies products, although I also enjoy designing for home decor and women products.This time I decide to create for home decor products, thinking ina Beach house in the Mexican Caribbean.
My main inspiration comes from nature and I love creating little histories with my graphics and patterns. I create my designs both digitally & hand painted.
For this particular collection I inspired in the "Flying fish" an amazing and beautiful creature that goes far and beyond its own nature. The flying fish is it self a nature masterpiece with incredible strength, resistance and beauty.
My selected color options along with emerald green
& all tonal possibilities along with Blues , Salmon
& Light Turquoise, inspired on a beautiful beach
natural color palette.
All the patterns in this "Let's Fly collection" are
hand painted with watercolors,black and metallic ink.
|The name of this pattern is "Swimming or Flying"|
I wanted to represent both abilities of the flying fish.
| The name of this pattern is "In and out" |
which represents the cycle of the
flying fish gettin in and out the water.
The name of this pattern is "Leaving a mark" which
is inspired in the zigzag shape that the flying fish
"draws" in the sea when raises the flight.
My goals as a designer for 2013 are starting a product line with my patterns. Exhibiting for 3rd time in Indigo Premiere Vision in September and opening more markets for the Believe creative studio design collection,in addition to this I am interested in a collaboration with to a non-profit organization and contribute with my designs to empower children in need to believe in themselves and follow their dreams.

Beautiful paintings! I clicked on the 1st one to see the details better and I love the texture within the paint. Do you use salt on your watercolour? Thanks again for organising the bloghop and good luck for 2013! xReplyDelete
Hi Lesley, thanks for your kind words, yes the texture is a result of playing with salt, water and water color at the same time, after I finished the designs I trougw water on them... Scary process! But worked well and give the effect I was going forDelete
