At Home in the Garden
As the daughter of artists, growing up in Washington, DC was a total immersion in the arts. As a teen, I lived two years in Italy with family; the first year in Salerno as my father fulfilled a Fullbright documenting the potters of southern Italy; the second year, at an Italian art school studying sculpture. I learned many things those two years- a love of the beautiful things in life – in its art and in nature.
At home, 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. Today, I grew 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.
