Tell us a bit about yourself
Hi! I’m Dominique Collins (Stixy), an Australian surface designer based in Brisbane, designing feminine and exuberant patterns and illustrations for home décor, gift wrapping, bolt fabric, stationary and more. I like to describe my work as graphic, feminine, playful and vibrant – a combination that’s influenced by my kids, growing up in South Africa, my travels around Australia and all our outdoor adventures.
How long have you been creating your art?
I have been creating art since I was a child. Only recently (May 2022) did I start creating surface patterns to share with the world.
Where do you draw inspiration from?
My kids, nature, spending time outdoors and from travel.
What's the most exciting thing you've seen your art on?
Fabric, Bags and Fitness Towels <3
What is your favourite art style at the moment?
I like to describe my favourite art style at the moment as graphic, feminine, playful and vibrant. This is what I try to capture and create in my patterns.
When you're not creating, what do you get up to?
I am a Mum first, so I spend time with my kids, taking them to their sports and activities, doing arts and crafts, playing games and having dance parties. We also spend a lot of time, on the weekends, at the beach and doing local activities with the kids. This fills my heart and creative bucket so much.
