My studio was a cheery place this last month in December; the snow piled up outside while gardens grew inside. Inspired by my previous abstracted-nature works, my client Heather Brountas commissioned me to create a painted and quilted textile art work to grace the wall behind her Portsmouth office desk. So I painted flowers and painted flowers and painted flowers…
The color palette came from her existing scheme of hanging artworks; watery sky views, ocean pastels and the warm complex white on the walls.
I painted cotton fabric using my mono-print technique—paint goes on my board then the fabric gets “printed” with it. I stitched flowers together in random clumps then stitched the clumps together randomly.

Always enjoy reading about your creative process, Jane!
Thank you Lori!
Looks lovely, especially on cold, dreary winter days – she can look at the flowers and dream of spring!
Thank you Joy!
