Tati Abaurre is a Brazilian pattern designer and illustrator living in Ljubljana, Slovenia. An illustrator of everything cute and sweet, Tati wonderfully finds the beauty in the everyday adding a touch of cuteness to everything she creates. With a love of nature and all things pretty, her whimsical drawings celebrate the beauty and wonder of everyday life.
She has a background in architecture and a masters degree in green building and sustainability from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. Soon after graduating, while taking a kids illustration course at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver, she fell in love with surface pattern design and was immediately drawn to the fascinating world of kids patterns and illustrations.
Since then she has licensed her work to be sold as kids clothing, stationary, children's books, kids decor, wallpaper, kitchenware, art prints, greeting cards and fabric. Her clients include Little Sleepies, FIGO Fabrics, LILIPINSO, Stormy Knight, Graphique de France, Chic.Mic, Up with Paper, YOYO Books and Calypso cards.
Her greatest joy is to see her patterns come to life in products, bringing a touch of joy into our daily lives.
