Fabric Design

I just bought a graphics tablet, I'm new to computer design and have always drawn with traditional media. Creating on a tablet with artist software is really fun, though, there is a serious learning curve! I am using Painter 12, and teaching myself to use layers and color and tools galore.

Mod Dandelion is my first official solo fabric design, for the Mod Wallpaper contest on Spoonflower.

This is my second attempt at a fabric design, I did some color changes and I really love it in teal...

I feel like a whole new wonderful world of design has opened up!

L. Simone Embroidery and Handbags

The SPUN exhibition opens next week, I am giddy with excitement!

Along with the embroidery pieces in the Threads Studio at the Denver Art Museum, I have been invited to sell hats, handbags and little plush owls at the museum gift shop.

Here are the little owls all bagged up and ready to go...

And here are a few of the purses...

In my hurry to get them to the museum, I forgot to take pics of the hats :-(
