I spent the earliest days of my career self producing a variety of product lines. All of my products began with my hand painted watercolor paintings. From there, artwork was digitized, color palettes were refined, designs tweaked, production techniques explored and packaging created to delight. It was so much work, ensuring that my artistic vision was fully realized every step of the way. And as I write these words, I recall just how much I loved it all...There's something about the process of creation from beginning to end that is deeply satisfying.
In more recent years, I have been licensing my art and designs to manufacturing partners who then use my art to enhance their product lines. The collaborating happens between me, my team and the manufacturer and their art director. Licensing also has elements that are richly rewarding, especially when our vision comes to life with a quality product, and I am fortunate to have many.
But I've been missing a more hands on approach. So my design team and I have jumped back in and we are about to offer our first collection of self produced, upholstery weight textiles on the most beautiful cotton/linen blend fabric. And, just as I remember, it really is a process;) We are still tweaking to get color perfect, but it's coming along beautifully. We are so excited to soon share the full collection, which features our softly sophisticated, organic designs along with a few other product line surprises. This collection will be offered to the trade via Interior Design Professionals and Showrooms and we simply can't wait to see what new opportunities may arise. I'm feeling inspired anew... it's really limitless, where we can take this! (upholstered furniture, anyone? :)
If you're a Design Professional or an Interior Design Showroom who would like more information about the new collection, (or, if you just plain dig what we're offering:) drop me a line and let me know how you envision us working together.
