Surface patterns and illustration for the young and young at heart. Who doesn’t love a bit of whimsy in their life?

Welcome to The Handmade Hollow! I’m Mercedes Weeks aka Sadie, an independent Canadian Artist and Surface Designer. My illustrations and patterns are great for children and the young at heart with youthful, bright and cheerful colour palettes. I describe myself as an eclectic Artist and love to use different mediums (especially watercolor) in both analog and digital art. I enjoy the painterly look and a natural feel, which is why my elements are hand drawn or painted. Please enjoy this sampling of some of my work. Let’s connect- I love licensing and collaborations! More of my work and full portfolio is available to view upon request. Here’s a great place to contact me. I can’t wait to hear from you.

Some of my work can also be found at Spoonflower in my fabric and wallpaper shop.
