“I do all of my designs by hand. You can see all of the nuances and texture in there you don’t get when printing from a computer design. I still do it the old-fashioned way and I’m really glad that I do.”
The patterns are inspired by nature. All of the crazy flowers and plants growing out there. I am forever filling up sketchbooks and forever doodling. And then I go back through my drawings and find shapes that I use in my pieces.
I do all of my work by hand — drawing, mixing colors and cutting out patterns. This captures nuances and desirable imperfections that you don’t get from a computer printed design. Each of the designs you see come from my collection.
