The truth is, I've always been in love with color and texture and will paint anything that doesn't paint me first. Designing knitwear was a way of continuing to explore color and texture when I didn't have enough room to leave my paints out in my first NYC apartment. Now I paint in my studio - that rocks!
I will paint many different things, including ceramics, canvases in oils, watercolors, crystal glassware, textiles and furniture. My artistic process seems to thrive on creating art that has a place in Everyday or Special Day places. Every idea manifests its own individual style.
Inspiration comes from so many different places. Many of my pieces are directly influenced by what I see outdoors - I am particularly drawn to botanicals - and I am a big fan of Still Life and Seascapes.
Some of the things I paint...
Crystal wine stemware in Poppies and Queen Annes' Lace patterns. These are often sold in sets of 4 or 6 along with other designs, but can also be ordered individually. Custom designs, too.
100% Cotton Bandanas and Throw Pillow Covers are handpainted with fabric dyes -
Originals and Reproductions, in oils and watercolor. Please contact me for details.
These are some of the designs that can be painted on most types and sizes of just about any type of decorative cotton pillow cover, glass vessel (think ice tea pitchers, shots or pilsners), bandanas, clothing - they can be ordered individually, or in sets.
