Digital paper collage artist

Fort Lauderdale, Florida | 84 Sales

Announcement    My name is Janet Carlson and my college degree and career were in fashion design within the Miami garment industry. Along the way, I’ve been quilting since high school. In September of 2005, I went back to night school to begin a mid-life career change into graphic design. It wasn’t until I was refreshing my fashion illustration skills by taking life drawing classes in a local art gallery in 2011 when I began creating these digital paper collages. This collection is a juxtaposition where fashion design and quilting meet up with Adobe Photoshop. My husband Daniel and I reside in Fort Lauderdale Florida. This contemporary folk art is influenced by life in South Florida, where we are surrounded by people from every culture and nation.

On Etsy since 2011

Determined to make it in the USA

My name is Janet Carlson and my college degree and career were in fashion design, 25 years within the Miami garment industry.
Back in 2005 I got involved with the Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign at a local vocational school. Started my own freelance graphic design business in 2009.
Digital paper collage captivated my interest for four years. I've since created 200 pieces that I sell as print on demand.
At that point I took on line classes in textile design. Textile design was always on the back burner of my imagination, but I needed the skills and courage to step forward into it. I'm now a graduate of Pattern Observer Textile Design Lab, so I understand what it takes for my files to be vector, raster, color separated and in repeat.
From there I came full circle back to fashion design, this time designing my own textile designs. With access to low minimums and a sublimation facility in Miami, I found that I could showcase my textile designs on my own line of board shorts.
I’m most interested in swim wear for men. My signature look could best be described as coastal and tropical. Because of my valuable experience with border and engineered panel prints while working as a fashion designer, I’m designing within this area of expertise.
