It's one of the many things I enjoy about being a designer; I respond to changes in weather, the sky, sunlight, plant life, textures and these experiences are reflected in my work.
My experience is much richer than four seasons. For me, the seasons change slowly. In increments.
Pattern, color, and memories they evoke as we make new ones.
I walk my kids to school most days. We often talk about our dreams on the way to school, and as I return home and to my studio, I enjoy the quiet, notice birds, trees, smells on the wind.
My gnome garden. I love humor and whimsy.
I hope my wearable art pieces inspire people to enjoy the seasons.
I enjoy the photography sessions and hope my photos are fun to look at, as well as helping the product sell.
I'm lucky to have a studio with lots of natural light, that overlooks the garden. I feel connected to the weather, changes in light, the clouds, blooming flowers, even as I rock out in my studio, creating things and sewing up a storm.
This makes me feel warm and cozy. I hope you do too. :-)
Almost all of my photo sessions are accompanied by curious cats.
