WHIMSIES

Here are some of the patterns I have made for Whimsies Clothing over the past year and into this one! I’m still designing things as we speak and will continue to do so, but this is a good showing of what I’ve made for them so far.

Everyday Beauty 1: Shower Curtain

extreme closeup of an old shower curtain becomes something interesting

I like to take closeup photos sometimes of the design elements in everyday items all around us that often go completely unnoticed or overlooked. This one’s from an old plastic shower curtain that I think we got for 2 bucks somewhere and threw out once it got icky. But one day I noticed exactly how intricate and beautiful the pattern on the outer curtain was. Homed in on, it’s a pretty impressive work of pattern art!

I wonder who in heck designed it.

The Art Vault: Old monoprints

I just love looking at old pieces now and then. These little beauties are probably from 2000 or 2001 at the latest. Simple monoprints using an inked plexiglass plate, I created the different shapes and patterns on them by using the ink roller itself. In the print above, I also tried taking a swatch of satin from an old bridesmaid gown of mine and running it under the press with the plate, creating the above pattern on the paper. I liked how it worked and went on to use the method in another monoprint, Achyra. Once I find some record of that one (if I do) I’ll show you. It left me at last year’s Hand Prints.
