I’ve been working on some printed cloth to incorporate into soon-to-be-revealed petal-una pieces. These are floating print layers and are one-of-a-kind pieces, each having a life of its own. I am always on the look-out for what I feel are perfect confluences of pattern and color in whatever surface design work I’m up to – these confluences will often become the subject of further image and pattern development. Here are lightly embellished “portraits” of some of these recent discoveries:
More with Indigo paint - sketches and textural studies. Indigo Spring.☀️

Indigo Spring emergents. Just getting started.☺️🌀
Otherworldly. I’ve been working with #indigodyeing this week (see my story for details on the process and finished pieces). I can’t help but be intrigued by random drip patterns on the paper I use to move the vat “flower” aside while I’m dyeing.
I am overflowing with inspiration - head working faster than my body can manifest. Am content with process being it’s own reward.
