At Home in the Garden

Classical instruction in painting and sculpture was my send-off to finding a commercially viable way to translate art 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!

This is my Litchfield garden. As a child, I spent lots of time outdoors. I tended a garden in spring -a chaotic mix of flowers and vegetables. The scent of marigolds still reminds me of late summer in that backyard. Today, I grow only flowers..the better to capture their beauty for wearing!
