Marine themed surface pattern collection. Inspired by an assortment of shells I found on a beach in Le Lavandou. A place where I spent many a happy childhood summer holiday. Their ornate delicate forms litter the golden sands in this beautiful region of The South of France. So tiny that at first you don't notice them underfoot, but once you do, their splendour and sheer variety compel you to collect them. 'Par La Mer' translates to 'By the Sea', one of my favourite places to be.
