About the Artist: Sarah Frederking

Sarah Frederking is a Surface Pattern Designer specializing in fresh colorful collections for the home décor and giftware markets. 

Her collections have adorned many products across the country including quilting textiles, paper products, tabletop, kitchen textiles, home accents and more. Her background as a custom lettering artist influences the style variety she brings to her collections, which range from whimsical characters to more classic repeats. Similarly her experience as a product designer in the gift industry gives her a great understanding of the parameters of various manufacturing processes and all that it takes to bring thoughtful and successful products to market. 

Born and raised in Connecticut, and the mother of two grown children, both following their own creative endeavors, Sarah now works from her home studio just outside of Chicago. When not in her studio you will find her gathering inspiration while biking through the neighboring communities rich in architecture and abundant gardens. She also enjoys figuring out ways to add to her already overflowing backyard garden. 

Her travels take her to family and friends scattered around the U.S. and to visiting her two young granddaughters living way too far away in Copenhagen. Any time spend with them is the greatest gift of all and seeing them enjoy some of her novelty creations is a true delight.
