A series of three designs, each representing varying discoveries of complex grid lines, channels, tributaries, bridges and roads and surrounded by water. Multiple color-ways for each design. I envision these in groups, perhaps one of each of the three designs matted and hanging either vertically or horizontally.
I wanted to take some of my smaller designs and create an impact by transforming them into more complex works that resemble the views seen through a kaleidoscope. Reminds us of a simpler time: Childhood...
Tightening and tightening, the collar restricts our movements and directs us to the North or South. The fight or flight mechanism in my mind reaches forward, hoping to release the grip of time and space. Geometric shapes configured in an open plan.
Christian painted her toes in the moonlight. She wriggled and twitched and ate tea sandwiches. Spatial anomalies aside, the man had style.
What could be more lovely than a bouquet of flowers ? A dance among the cascading droplets of petals, reaching out to be touched and carried away. The containment by the sphere gives the composition some control while the interior of positive and negative space creates movement.
So, catch me up on what's been happening with you? A fantasy weave of moss and vine on a backdrop of spheres. It opens up a dialog and sends you across the road to pick berries.
Prehistoric creatures migrate through the sea united with cables of jump rope and bungee cords. Inspired by an idea for a children's book featuring illustrations of similar critters in gardens, forests and high rises..... This pattern may be part of a fabric collection down the road.
In a mad rush, the diamondback hides between a Poppy and a pile of Fall foliage. He hopes to be invisible from the young boy slashing through the leaves with a rake.
A LOOK INSIDE
A fantastic journey of depths and raw emotions. These color ways inspire introspection as each reminds us of a piece of ourselves. We all possess many complex and ever changing layers.
HABITAT 1 AND 2
As soon as the wheels started to turn, Scarlett mobilized a gear army to polarize the North and South before cheese and crackers started a conflict with the olive brigade.
Vintage wallpaper was the inspiration for this design. Encroaching to the water's edge, a backdrop of flora and fauna meet sea urchin. Crawling up the wall in patterns of warm and muted tones. Subtle enough for a dining room or fanciful in the powder room.
A ferris wheel in the forest. Ground cover, vines, fragrant flowers and geometric game boards align at the crossroads of a path divided.
PICK UP STICKS 1 AND 2
A game of pick up sticks, anyone? Clean vertical and horizontal lines, intersect each other on a ground of neutrality. Spheres add dimension and a feeling of flying.
Bishop stared out at the landscape ahead of him, wandering through the path of clouds and sky. He sped up when behind him appeared the shadow of an angel reaching toward his shoulder to sweep him to the heavens. He wasn't ready to go.
BOX O ROX
My seashore growing up. Covered in gentle sloping waves and millions of rocks, shells and the odd fish skeleton! I awoke to this design from a deep slumber, dreaming of my childhood home on the beach.
