From sewing to fabric design

After 7 years of sewing custom crib bedding using thousands of yards of fabrics designed by other people, I had the desire to create my own fabric designs. Besides knowing my way around a sewing machine, I am trained as a fine artist and designer and am so glad to have found a way to combine these skills with my love of textiles. While I still like to sew items myself, using fabrics from my stash, my main focus now is on design. It is so exciting to see a fabric I've designed made into a finished item like a duvet cover or throw pillow.

I am obsessed with color and shape. Inspiration comes from the plants seen on my daily walks, architectural details spotted on my travels, and the vibrant colors of San Antonio, Texas where I live. My designs always start with handmade motifs using ink, paint, or hand-carved stamps. My modern surface pattern designs tend to be simple, bold and colorful.
