One of my first immersions in color, pattern, and texture came from fabric. My mother would take me to fabric shops (she sewed) and also was a member of a mail-order club, and swatches would come in the mail. I LOVE fabric!!
I’ve designed textiles for commercial use, and studied dyeing and fabric painting extensively. Recently I’ve discovered Spoonflower, an online site where you can create textile, wallpaper and wrapping paper designs, and I’ll be playing with their tools again soon.
