Happy Holidays!!

I wish you all a wonderful Holiday and Happy New Year!  Thank you for ordering Christmas presents for your loved ones from my SHOP.  Please note that any orders placed after December 16th cannot be promised for Christmas delivery.  Perhaps an order from Pomegranate publishing could do the trick?  They have published a puzzle and note cards of my designs!  They are also available at Amazon.

Powers of Ten Infinity Scarves!? Aye! It just makes sense.

Here we go!  After some time away from making product for the holiday markets, I have restocked my infinity scarves. There are 12 patterns to choose from.  All scarves are made from 100% organic cotton knit fabric that has been digitally printed with elements derived from my Powers of Ten series and hand-sewn by me here in my Denver studio.  Check out my shop if you are interested.  Spring should be nice time to wear them.

Also, I've been working on a new line of surface designs that I look forward to sharing with you in the near future.  In the meantime, I hope that you are all well and enjoying the slow shifting season.

New...'Powers of Ten' Pillows

The last couple of months have been busy making goods based upon the patterns in my Powers of Ten series.   These are 19" x 19" feather-fill pillows created from my surface design collections Crystals, Flotsam, Lilypads, Branches, Pinwhickle and Ropes.  Each design is digitally printed on a linen/cotton blend fabric, with a linen/cotton backing fabric and piping.  All have a zipper closure.

I'll be selling them this weekend at the Horseshoe Holiday Market here in Denver.  It's from 10am to 4pm Satruday at Pavilions.  It would be great to see you there!  I'll also have them for sale on my site soon.  Stay tuned.

Happy Holidays!

Happy Halloween Pumpkin Carving

If you have a pumpkin you want to carve and you don't quite know what image to make, a great immediate solution is to look at your hands.  There's a good chance that within each knuckle, you will find a little face.  I had students in my drawing class spend the day drawing their knuckles and when through, they carved their pumpkins from one of their drawings.  It's a bit ridiculous, but I wanted to share the project with you.  Happy Halloween!

Teepees and Roofs

After a wonderful week in the Big Horn Mountains of Wyoming I am back to work on my drawings.  While there I was inspired by the teepee frame in the meadow behind the cabin where we stayed and the roofs on the ranger station in the distance.  These two drawings reflect these forms, abstracted and promoted by the patterns and color that emanate from the structures.

The Silencer

While working on this latest mask drawing I realized that I was inspired once again by a UFO drawing that I stumbled upon years ago and wrote about on this blog.  I am so seduced by the tiny intersecting spot that is created when a round form rests on a flat surface. 

As I continue to work on the drawings for this series,  I get more and more  excited to begin the sculptural realm of the project.
