I'm going to visit my family next week and decided to take a few pouches I made. You can see the printed fabrics in the photo above.

Marti Somers

I saw Marti Somers work in a gallery named Caldwell Snyder in St Helena in Napa Valley, and fell in love with her paintings.

Tree house

Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur, what a wonderful place. We stayed in one of the tree houses (4th row) and had a view of the ocean and the woods. Everything was perfect, the location, the room, the people, the food and even the weather. It's a very unique place to visit and stay.


Enjoying nature in Carmel.

I have two silk printing classes left and I'm working on a design for the final piece. I'm thinking mixed media, stamping for the solid shapes and silk printing for the rest. The picture at the top shows four diff color options. It will be one continuance piece, but I didn't choose the colors yet. You can see the various colors on the black tabs on the right. Any thoughts?

Beautiful shibori work from Sea and Stone Studio on etsy. ; I took a shibori class over the weekend in the Japanese American National Museum in downtown LA with Glennis Dolce. It was a great class, so much fun playing with dyes and silk. It takes a lifetime to practice and become a shibori proffesional.

Free patterns

All my free patterns are back, thank you for all your support and patient. I decided to make them available again because it gives me so much joy to share them with you. I almost feel flattered that designers choose to knit my free patterns and sell them, rather than their own.

Getting inspired from items in my studio for color combos, shapes and texture. Ink, hand made items, nature and anything that catches my eye.
