Just a little fun with lines. Still feeling a bit geometric. Probably has something to do with the thought of more SNOW....having trouble visualizing flowers when the threat of more SNOW is looming. UGH! I would like some warm weather now...pretty pretty PLEASE!!! :)

Fabric Collections....oh how I LOVE FABRIC COLLECTIONS!! I love to see how designers combine common...or not so common elements and themes, and unite them with color into a collection. Recently, I have been trying to concentrate much of my energy on developing my portfolio. I am trying to sort through the pages and pages of drawings and doodles in my sketchbook, and start to assemble the designs into collections. Here are two of the collections that I am currently working on. I have several more designs to incorporate into each collection, but at least it is a pretty good start. I have so much fun finding just the right colors for each design and watching the collections come together! Enjoy! :)

I was doing a great deal of research about Ireland while developing my design for the REPEAT(ed) competition. My design kept evolving as I played around with various elements that I thought represented Ireland. My designs were influenced by the beautiful landscape, culture and history, as well as the people of Ireland. Here are a few of the designs that I created but did not enter. Hope you like them. :)
|"Land and Sea"|
These designs were inspired by the beautiful hills of Ireland and sea as far as the eye can see.
|"Heart of Ireland"|
This design (shown in three colorways) used elements of Irish lace, Ireland's Snow Drop Flower, Celtic Knots, and the petals of the Shamrock represented by the heart.
