This year I have been lucky enough to spend some time traveling. From Portugal to New Mexico, and the mountains of Colorado. All along, I have been taking photos and jotting down ideas, either to use in my garden, or my licensing collections. After spending months working on my property, I realized how much I love creating environments, and how this is a path that I will continue to pursue.
Now that fall is in full swing, I am heading back into the studio, and just finished designing my first image inspired by Portuguese tiles. This year I have been particularly interested in how to take travel ideas from sketchbooks, and translate them into viable collections.
