I'm Melissa Jackson-Horton, a surface designer originally from California currently living right outside of Atlanta, Georgia. After graduating from California State University, Long Beach with my BA in Design, I took a break to become a stay at home mom. I've always been fascinated by pattern design whether it was walking through a hospital and noticing the soft pattern on a sofa, or simply staring at my own shower curtain with massive curiosity as to how it was done. And, one day I randomly ran across a pattern class via the internet and everything from that point on exploded. 

My style is simplistic yet playful. I gather inspiration from nature, my toddler and constant travels back and forth from the east coast to the west. My work is always hand drawn first before scanning and cleaned with Photoshop. Then it is transferred over into Illustrator for the real glam. Everyday I'm growing increasingly obsessed with pattern design and ready to absorb all that there is to learn about the business. 

If interested in licensing any of my work, please email me at hello@leeleejack.com. I would love to hear from you.

Thank you and blessings,

Melissa Jackson-Horton, also known as LeeLee
