At Home in the Garden
After years of classical instruction in painting and sculpture I was driven to find a commercially viable way to translate my designs onto fabric. I’ve sewn since childhood. After college I began to work in fabric appliqué for clothing and home decor. Today, I create beauty digitally, which is then printed onto fabric using images from nature and my gardens. My creative process is now software driven. The bulk of my design time is spent on computer, finished off with essential hand sewing as needed. When I’m not tending the garden!
I created my Litchfield garden with the visual arts in mind. Growing up, one of eleven, I spent lots of time outdoors. We were each expected to tend a garden in spring -a chaotic mix of flowers and vegetables. The scent of marigolds still reminds me of late summer in our backyard. Today, I grow only flowers..the better to capture their beauty for wearing!
My blog is an ongoing adventure celebrating natural comforts found in every day life. How do you find comfort? What do you think?
I now print my photographic images to several different fabrics for scarves. Chiffon is very popular. It’s my favorite as it displays the closest to light in a garden. See what’s in stock.
Select other images live on in cotton sateen as Paola Pillows– enhanced and artfully printed with fiber reactive dyes for permanent results- washable and dry cleanable.
