We are a family-owned business started by Patty Becker. She believes that art comes in many forms, and one of those forms could be hand-painted fabric designs printed onto various materials. These original designs can be used on pillows, aprons, tablecloths, table runners, and so much more.
Patty Becker believes strongly that color plays directly into your mood and happiness, and that color should be in everyone's homes. Becker Designs believes in bringing color to your home, creating a more positive environment for all who live and enter.
Patty was born in Heidelberg, Germany, while her father was stationed in the Military. Once her father retired, her family settled in Ft Lauderdale, Florida. Patty attended the University of South Florida in Tampa.
Later she moved to the Atlanta area and worked as a merchandiser in the apparel industry, where she often traveled to New York, meeting with designers and others in the industry. This is where she witnessed firsthand the bringing together of color palettes and textile design. This influence is seen in her artwork and the fabrics she exhibits today.
Three years ago, she started creating as an artist with the encouragement of several artist friends. In her first year of painting, Patty was accepted into a local gallery in her hometown. This is where Patty started selling her artwork on pillow covers and then moved towards creating her own fabric designs.
You recognize “Becker Designs by Patty" by the vibrant colors she depicts in her fabrics. Her thought behind her fabrics is such: she believes art doesn’t just belong on wall but can be brought by fabrics throughout your home.
As Patty explains, “Your home is a blank canvas, and you can add color to make it your own. Many people play it safe by just neutrals and grey, and that’s fine if that’s what you like. But making your home pop with something unique is where it’s at today. If COVID taught us anything it’s our home is our haven, and we should surround ourselves with color and things that make us happy."
Patty feels art is her creative outlet and it affects a person's well-being in everyday life. Patty started selling her fabrics in 2021 and is represented by Dogwood Fabrics out of Atlanta. Becker Designs by Patty is family-owned, as her husband Don and brother Roy help in the everyday tasks in running the company.
