This story began years ago with a fascination for the beauty of nature and a desire to bring its beauty into others homes.
As the daughter of artists, growing up in Washington, DC was a total immersion in the arts. My mother played piano daily and with our art professor father, oversaw an intensive arts education- from painting to music, to sculpture and printmaking, sewing and Egyptian paste jewelry. I lived two years in Italy- Salerno and Florence- learning many things Italian and studying in an Italian sculpture program.
Taking comfort in nature sounds a little escapist. As 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.
We now print my photographic images to three different fabrics for scarves. Chiffon is very popular. It’s my favorite as it displays the closest to light in a garden. What do you think?
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. Pillow Talk is an ongoing adventure blog seeking natural comforts found in every day life. How do you find yours? Check us out.
