My inspiration for the Cali Collection: I love rich saturated colors combined with unexpected patterns and textures. I am drawn to the idea of a psychedelic take on camouflage found in nature. Think tropical fish, lush plants, and beautiful insects. I also like the idea of the pattern transporting you to an exotic place where the nature becomes almost otherworldly. One of my favorite playgrounds is the beach. The way the light reflects off the water is always inspiring. Details on the collection in the full blog post.Read More
My design inspiration for the new tropical print "Paradise Wave": I love the rich saturated colors and unexpected patterns and textures in the Psychotropical trend for S/S 18. I was drawn to the idea of a psychedelic take on camouflage. I also like the idea of the pattern transporting you to an exotic place where the nature becomes almost otherworldly. In Photoshop I added glossy film layers and textures to my patterns to add an ephemeral and iridescent quality. Synthetic looking brights in the Psychotropical activewear trend pair nicely with the bold Charged Pink. I love the way this pink color palette highlights the youthful energy of this design-- the perfect surface pattern for activewear. This pattern is available for purchase. Details below.Read More

I'm passionate about wellness and setting aside some time every day to get outside to play. As a designer, my patterns are inspired by the outdoors--especially the way light plays with colors at such a high elevation here in Colorado. One of my favorite things to do for design research--and for fun--is to pack up my ski gear and head to one of the nearby resorts--Breckenridge, Beaver Creek, Vail, or Keystone.
My new design collection, Boho Bryony, was created with activewear in mind. When I design a textile I'm thinking about how the colors and patterns can be energizing or calming. Often my inspiration for a new design comes from photos I take while skiing, hiking with my dogs, or exploring new places. I'm always looking at what people wear and what colors, patterns and designs flatter the body. I am that girl who stops someone in line getting coffee and asks "where did you get that great parka?"Read More
