Back To The Source

It’s been a while, but I’m finally getting back into the world of Illustration.  Painting used to be something I did often and I kind of miss it.  Plus block printing is very different than painting with a brush.  Shapes and patterns can only be so detailed, while the use of color is usually pretty restrictive.  Over the last few years I’ve created a lot of designs that I LOVE that never made the cut for printing because it either doesn’t translate well as a print, or it would be much better received in another medium.

So it’s time to dig out those old designs and get into it!  Here’s a preview of what’s coming to the Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco, July 19th and 20th, 2014.

Oh, Spring.

Spring is here.  YAY.  A lot going on in the studio including some new patterns and new products!  I lazily debuted my Spring collection dubbed “Secret Garden” then put only about a quarter of the product I made up on my Etsy site.  I’ll get there…not enough time in my week *Sigh*

A few pics of my new designs!

Fabric by the Yard!

My latest and greatest venture is the addition of fabric by the yard!  This has been something I have wanted to try since the beginning, but have been too intimidated to attempt.  It seemed so overwhelming, but after setting up and placing the first print, it was actually a lot of fun!  And especially so when it was finished and came out so fantastically.

In other news:


I’d make that all colored and giant, but I don’t know WordPress very well, and I might have to pay for that option…

but just in case you missed that:


Only the Emeryville store, but c’mon, that’s still kind of amazing, no?

You can buy these little friends there


20″ Linen Envelope Pillow Covers in “Summer Moccasin”


Set of 4 Cotton Table Napkins in “Fishbone”

I haven’t seen it in the store myself yet, but a friend walked in there looking for sheets and saw my stuff.  Stoked.


Recoverie + West Elm

Up on deck I’m prepping for San Francisco’s Summer Renegade Fair at Fort Mason, July 27 + 28th!  My first solo 10×10 booth.  Excited to see how it goes.  More to come!

Last but not least, I now offer small scale block printing and design classes through the site!  A nice lady from their main Chicago branch told me to offer a class, so I said “ok”.  Find them here!
