Fabric designs



Baroque Curlicue

Linocut/acrylic/digtal, 2015

I created this pattern in 2015 using a linoleum block print I'd originally carved in 2006, combined with a colored background I painted with diluted acrylics, and layered digitally.

We Were Made For Each Other, plaid

Pen/pencil/digital, 2015

This is the most recent version of a design I originally created in 2012. In this design the star-crossed lovers of classic B monster movies finally get their happy ending.

Although it is already sold, you can see a skirt I sewed from this fabric on Etsy. I still have a scarf, tote bag, and tea-towel available, made out of variations of this design. You can also see more designs in this collection on Spoonflower.



Baroque Pet Portrait Gallery

Photography/digital, 2014

My cats and my sister's dogs (or perhaps their aristocratic ancestors?) appear in hallowed portrait galleries, in paintings by Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Gainsborough, Frans Hals, Hans Holbein the Younger, Diego Velazquez, and more.

You can see a tote bag and scarf I sewed from this fabric here (both are already sold, sorry). I will also soon be posting some skirts made from this.

I have a loose long jacket trimmed with dark red velvet that I sewed out of this fabric, and literally every time I wear it I get compliments on it.

Ghost Forest

Photography/digital, 2013

On a misty morning in winter I stopped on the way to work to take pictures of the leafless trees near the river in the Snoqualmie Valley. I think they look even more beautiful layered and inverted to create a ghost forest.

Here's a dress and scarf I sewed using variations of this design. It makes a nice border print.

La Vie Parisienne

Digital, 2012

Fashionable ladies who appeared as spot illustrations in the pages of the magazine "La Vie Parisienne" between 1918 and 1928 grace this chic pattern. I adore late Edwardian and 1920s fashions, so it was a lot of fun working on this design.

You can see a dress and matching tote bag I sewed out of this fabric.

Diamond Skull Rose

Digital, 2012

I love working with vintage motifs. This design includes anatomical illustrations and text from a 16th Century German apprenticeship contract.

I made a few scarves and tea towels using variations of this design.

Picnic with Cthulhu

Pen/pencil/digital, 2010

For those who don't know, Toile de Jouy is a rather twee, sedate, antique-looking style of monochromatic printed fabric, often featuring pictures of idealized shepherds and shepherdesses having lovely picnics or frolicking in delightful pastoral scenes.

For my first attempt at designing toile I decided to feature Cthulhu, who has not been depicted often enough in charming pastoral scenes. Admittedly the pastoral scene in this case consists of a small withered dead tree. But I only found out about the Toile contest the night before the submission deadline, so I was in bit of a rush.

Here are some charming aprons I sewed out of the blue, green, and wine colorways of this design.
