My goals for this year are to incorporate more pattern design into my paintings, and more painting into my pattern design! I will be creating a full portfolio of designs and a new body of paintings to take on the road in the late summer and fall.
My inspiration for these "Let's Fly" Themed designs is that suspended in time place that I occupy while traveling...especially on long trips. Being out of my regular routine gives me a fresh perspective on everything, what's important to me, what can be let go off. Travel also introduces me to so much new beauty and inspiration. I love looking at the earth from the airplane, seeing new contours that I've never seen before, and when coming home, seeing the lovely familiar shapes that are my home. These are the inspirations for the print pattern "Aerial View".
For my Bird Collage pattern I took inspiration from my polymer clay collage. I love the pattern beside pattern, the quilt-y feeling of cutting and piecing the clay to make my collage. This year I will be teaching polymer clay collage for the first time! I tried to capture the pieced and quilt-like feeling here in this pattern.
