Earlier this year, I got an email from one of the writers of House Beautiful magazine asking me if I'd like to have my work as part of an editorial feature. I sent them some photos and the June issue is out!
My first ever magazine feature! So pleased! When I started printing, I never thought my work would be seen by people, in a magazine - sitting on the same page as Sanderson's and Marimekko! I carve and print my designs at home. Most times, my two girls and my dog are around me... playing, dancing, shouting etc. etc. Everything I do comes from within me. There are no shiny surfaces here. I trained as a graphic designer and have spent many hours in front of a shiny Macintosh with clean clothes and clean nails and clean hair. Printing however, isn't as glamorous, but being able to carve my own design, print my own fabric and to make it into something in this case, a lampshade is so very rewarding!
Congratulations! Well done! Love your work!ReplyDelete

Fantastic! Congratulations! Good to see that your beautiful and interesting prints are "getting out" to those who might not find you by them selves..ReplyDelete
And here I am in Denver loving the shade I saw in the magazine and will be purchasing either it or a cushion with the same print as soon as the room I want it for is ready! Your work is beautiful.ReplyDelete
