Meet Phyliss Dobbs... Artist & Licensing Savant

As an artist, I create art for licensing on products 
in the textile, gift and home goods industry. 
In textiles, I have designed fabric collections for 7 years. 
I also focus on designing quilt and sewing patterns and 
have written a new built book “Asymmetrical Quilts”.

How did you finally decide on the look of your brand?  
What did the evolution look like?
My brand came naturally for me. First, I am pretty much obsessed with color so in everything I do, vibrant color is key.  And I naturally gravitate toward whimsy. I’ve tried doing more traditional, but when I draw, paint and design, the whimsy comes out.  
The combination of color and whimsy have defined my brand. I’ve had so many people 
tell me that my art makes them smile. That’s a comment that makes me smile and happy with what I do. 

Phyllis is currently working on new art for licensing including a new fabric line 
as well as adding more art to products for her Zazzle store. She also just entered 
into a collaboration with another quilt designer for a quilt related project.
