As these moody Ohio days keep me indoors, I am thankful for this time that forces me to focus on my creative processes. I find myself delving into thoughts of why I'm doing this, why I'm choosing to run a small business that is super stressful and sometimes seemingly impossible and I'm becoming even more convinced that it is the right path for me in this season. Running into struggles does not mean, run the other way, it might mean, train and and push yourself so that you can do even greater things. . . . Isaiah 41:10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. . . . This is the black and white linework of my art for @gilsonsnow I am nearly done with the whole piece, it is currently in the computer editing portion and it is SO good to see it all coming together. I can't wait to share that. If you are interested in any of my other art you can find prints and originals through the link in my profile.

Ohhh, but that comfort zone is so cozyyyy sometimes! Can I get a witness? Fear of failure and lack of faith in Jesus sometimes keeps me from taking that leap. Taking today to do some new designs (😬) and work on our website! How can you step out of your comfort zone today?

🤸🏽‍♀️The big reveal 🤸🏽‍♀️ What a joy to be asked to create a memory of this glorious bouquet. Working from a selection of available blooms and the photographs taken on the day I hope I have managed to capture this cascade of tumbling flowers and herbs. Which one do you think she has chosen? 🤔

Current work in progress. I will always love contrast and classic, old-school type. It took a little bit of extra time to get here, but sometimes it’s just that much better because I’ve looked at it upside down and inside out and am absolutely sure that it’s the best it can be. By the way, my calendar for the rest of the year is filling up quickly due to client work and business projects, so if you’re thinking about a new look for the new year, now is the time to get in touch! Planning to spend the rest of the day tying up loose ends and packing because we’re headed to Texas tomorrow! 🤗

Several months ago, I had a dream I was among high mountains, cool breeze, sunshine, snow capped peaks. A wind came and I lay in the bright green grass watching blades of grass ripple like waves on the ocean against the immovable peaks. There was a moment when a cluster of bright yellow flowers near me were tossed and swirled - loose sand or snow around the flower stems began to cover the blooms. We were there visiting someone. Among those there, was a young girl who didn’t speak our language. Her name was Ithaca. I don’t recall much else of the dream... but when I woke I felt like I needed to look up the “Ithaca” (the girl’s name). Ithaca is Odysseus’ home in Homer’s Odyssey. The archetypal island/idea of home to which he spent a decade trying to return. I hardly ever have vivid memorable dreams, and this one stood out as something I want to remember. It has been subtly influencing my marks and imagery in recent weeks. I can feel it. Ithaca. I feel that elusive whisper of “home” in the air today. Here on earth, as it is in heaven.

Growth comes in waves. You can push yourself to grow, but you never know if your open and ready to fully understand and know how to use your new knowledge or skill. My fabric collections at @cottonandsteel opened a new world to me. Suddenly i felt the desire to grow and offer complete pattern collections. I had to learn how to build a collection, find a new workflow and learn some new digital skills. Today i made the first mockup illustration set to visualise my buzzing summer pattern collection. Still much to learn, but it feels like i opened a new door full of opportunities. Hurray to growth ☀️ . . . . #growth #grow #creativeprocess #growing #creativeentrepeneur #mockup #mockupillustration #baby #babystuff #kids #kidsfashion #patterncollection #surfacepatterndesigner #surfacepatterndesign #fabric #textiledesign #fabricdesign #patterndesign #patterndesigner #patternlove #patterncollection #artlicensing #printandpattern #surfacepattern #repeatpattern #textiledesigner #fabricdesigner #illustration #illustrator #printmaker #loesvanoosten

about.the.adventure. Has there been anything that has surprised you during your career chan

Has there been anything that has surprised you during your career change? How hard it is to actually make that leap, and how debilitating that fear can be if you don’t arrest it. I made three attempts at changing career. I knew what I wanted to do, I just didn’t know how to make it a comfortable move. It was far easier for me to go back to agencies, but I was ultimately unfulfilled in that work. Fulfilment for me has to be the focus. Why is fulfilling work important to you? It’d be easy to say that fulfilment = happiness but it’s not quite as simple as that. It’s a part of it, but for me it’s about feeling like I have a path that I’m following that I’m in control of and everyday waking up and feeling like I’ve made progress along that path and it’s been my own doing. It’s about progress and feeling the reward that comes from learning every day and those little snippets where I do create something really nice. That makes it all worthwhile. If you have a period of time when things feel like they’re not quite in alignment with how you want them to be, how do you handle that? I tell myself to continue trusting in myself, because I think when it begins to feel unsecure or uncomfortable it’s very easy to reach out for low hanging branches that might give you that feeling of comfort financially. I am on a journey and if I keep veering off then it’s going to take longer. I remind myself what I’m doing, why I’m doing it, and where I want to get to. That stops me from pushing the panic button, which I did at 23 and 28. How do you check-in with yourself and your vision? It’s about stopping working. I tend to take time off, read a book, do some exercise, doodle – I love to doodle. I think it’s in those moments, in the quiet times, that I’m able to make well thought-out and considered decisions. Consequentially it’s the best time to reassure myself, or remind myself, that what I’m doing is right for me. What projects completely immerse you? I love spending time around people who work with their hands, be it in a workshop or factory environment. That’s probably my favourite thing, appreciation of craft. Sam is predominantly a film maker, making short format films.

RainbowHail, 2019⚡ . . Yesterday I received to really great compliments that made me feel really grateful. 1) One of my old instructors from college told me he looks at my work for inspiration and to see what he could do differently. 2) A friend from College stopped by my office and said "I hear the Hailley Fayle name dropped a lot around the college!" And she congradulated me. I often forget to celebrate myself and all my accomplishments because I feel like it's "bragging." Recently life has taught me that being confident or proud of yourself/your work isn't bragging, it's honouring your growth and celebrating how hard you've worked.⚡ Thank you to everyone who sends me love & reminds me of the things I've accomplished so far!! ♡♡♡ This photo was taken by @hollybearphotography and edited by me. #HailleyFaylePhotography #HailleyHailley #Montréal #CreativeProcess

Current status; working slowly on another large painting. Things I need: A palate that could use a good scrub, not to chew on my brushes, and the dog to sit next to me.

I can’t tell you how many times this happens to me. I start out with a beautiful painting in my head, I get all excited about it, but when I start to paint it, I hate it. It drives me crazy, I want to give up. I end up painting over it several times. I put it away for days and come back to it. I start to paint it again, trying new techniques and try to trust myself that I can do it. Slowly things start to emerge that gets me excited again to keep going, stay with it and trust the process. Then usually the the piece ends up being one of my favorites paintings. I think many go through this in life in general not just artists. We just have to remember to stay with it, don’t give up too quickly, trust the process because at the end it will all work out. . . . . . #staywithit #creativeprocess #learnfromyourmistakes #bedifferent #dontgiveup #artforthesoul #patternlove #creativeprocess #artforbreakfast #patternobserver #artistquotes #acrylicpainting #reassuringwords #wordstoliveby #wordsofwisdom #wordstoponder #quoteoftheday #quoteoftoday #wordsofwisdom #wordstoliveby #wordsarepowerful #creativequotes #happythursday #quotesaboutlife #emotionaljourney #behnazahmadianart #denverartist #denvergallery #womenartists
