Our real digital art brush sets are inspired by traditional art media and textile design techniques with emphasis on an authentic real feel so you can create beautiful artwork without losing handcrafted qualities.



Patternologie is about creating art inspired by nature. The best way to explore this is by booking an in-person workshop. Workshop venues are specially selected to combine indoor and outdoor activities adding a little nature therapy to the learning experience.

Self-paced online courses will show you how you can use the Procreate brushes in surface pattern design projects. Each project will include a brush set to download and install on your iPad to complete your designs. The courses provide a supportive learning experience for those looking for a simple transition from traditional to digital art.
