It was such a special pleasure to have 4 of my watercolor paintings purchased by the Anne Taylor Inc. company Lou & Grey last year, to become fabric designs in their Autumn 2016 collection!
In the summer of 2015 I began diving deeply into my explorations in watercolor painting, I was especially inspired that summer by a month long trip to Europe in which I took just a few supplies with me. I traveled with a watercolor painting set, a roll of sable brushes, and a couple of cold pressed Arche watercolor paper pads. With these simple tools I painted daily on that trip, gathering color & shape inspiration from all the beautiful spots we traveled through. Lou & Grey purchased the paintings the following Autumn and all 4 of the paintings that became part of the Lou & Grey collection were created on that trip!
Seeing my paintings turned into fabric was a complete JOY and now I love wearing the pieces from the collection!!
This is the original triangle piece that the pictured fabric pattern was created from.
