We love sharing stories that matter. What's yours?
As a nod to my years as an interior designer and because I LOVE homes and interiors, I create rooms in fabric. For years artists have painted interior portraits. Historically, they were a way of preserving one's memories and handing them down to the next generation. I take this one step further. While using textiles as my medium I often use the same or similar fabrics to the rooms I recreate. I like to include important or memorable objects. I compare my designs to miniature rooms or dollhouses, both of which I have collected in the past. The challenge for me is finding interior design textiles that are small enough to create enough of an impact for the room without throwing off the scale. Mixing fabric, color and texture creates a room similar to one that we might have in our own home. OR, sometimes, something completely out of the ordinary. More playful and perhaps surreal… Look for the little elements I sometimes include - buttons, baubles and other small trinkets.
