Blue Skies Workroom is an exercise in radical optimism, the idea that in our chaotic everyday, acts of optimism are a bold force of will. As an artist and as a teacher, I strive to make joy and create beauty for the sheer pleasure of working within and bringing others into this space. Each utilitarian, handmade object is a conversation between color, materials and design, and creates an opportunity for dialogue between user and article, to fill or to fondle. Affordable pleasures for everyday living.
I create most of my designs from hand cut paper and drawn marks; print primarily on linen and cotton for heft, drape and sheen; and use eco-friendly, non-toxic and water-based inks. I take inspiration from artists and designers such as Alexander Girard, Marimekko, Anni Albers, Liubov Popova, Sol LeWItt, Helio Oiticica, Lubna Chowdhary, and Camille Walala, as well as contemporary knitters, quilt repeats, African and Dutch wax fabrics and katagami.
