Tessellations and Patterns

Patterns are everywhere in nature!  We see them in our daily lives if we simply pay attention.  Tessellations are specific patterns of shapes that fit perfectly together to cover a surface  so that there are no overlaps or gaps.  Some are simple geometric shapes however more complex designs can be turned into beautiful Tessellation Art!  

I find the unique way that shapes, lines and colors fit together to be calming and beautiful.  Below you will see how I have used nature as inspiration for my Pattern and Tessellation art.  Enjoy!
