Boho Inspirations


Yesterday in the studio I started with a blank canvas and boho-inspired thoughts of fun colors, mixed textiles/textures and unique buttons. First I decided on periwinkle blue linen and a sage green linen textured fabric for the main body of my satchels. Then the fun began. I pulled out my bins containing fabric scraps of wool felt, harris tweed, linen and more and started experimenting by cutting and layering different pieces together. There were bits of fabric flying everywhere but I didn't care. I would go with the moment and clean up later.
I finally decided on wool felt and tweed to create my appliques with. I love how the highly textured Harris Tweed looks against the soft wool felt and how the sculptural looking carved wood buttons top everything off. My new boho-inspired satchels will be available in the shop tomorrow. And tomorrow I'll be back in the studio with new inspirations.

Souvenirs from a Road Trip Giveaway!

That's me in Miami Beach, Florida!


I'm back from a fantastic road trip around the South East, USA!  My partner and I started in NYC and went south on Interstate 95 down to Miami Beach, Florida. We made many stops along the way to amble about and see the sites. In honor of this wonderful trip I decided to have a Giveaway! The Giveaway will be my Saddle Bag, pictured to your left, filled with a few souvenirs ( a surprise!) from my trip. To enter the giveaway all you need to do is follow my blog and post a comment about your favorite vacation at the end of this post.  That's it! I'll pick one winner at random (I will use random.org) this coming Monday. Good luck!

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!

Time

My work pictured on the left has taken time away from my work on the right. Spending free time these days with friends and walks on the beach.


Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!
