Anita Olson's Profile
neda originals has been my artist signature for
over 35 years, and yet this is the first time I have actively attempted to market my things. My art is all about color - nothing subtle here! All of the things I sell are items I would use myself - many times I make the original for myself, then think of improvements to make when I make more to sell. I tend to get bored with the same old thing, so I go in spurts. Several weeks I will design and sew bags and purses, sometimes burying myself in silk remnants for weeks, at other times, working exclusively with cotton yardage, maybe a week or two to paint wooden items. I remember one summer I painted every piece of furniture on my 3 season porch, and suddenly had orders for my wildly painted benches!
Quality is important to me, I use the best I can afford - silks, 100% cotton, linen…
