My inspiration? 17th and 18th century chinoiserie with all the color and whimsical imagery that never fails to fascinate. Add to that the faded soft hues of vintage Paris.
The frescoes and murals and aged wall paintings in the wonderful grand old French maisons and chateaux influence my work. I’m drawn to colors and patterns that reveal a story of old and of generations past. I love to paint birds and flowers to tell a narrative of life and family, sweet gardens, roses, love and joy.
I hope you enjoy the new pillows, in silk or linen.
They are lined and each plumped with a feather/down insert and invisible zipper.
Merci mille fois!
P.S. The pillow collection is now available through Flowering Around, Bainbridge Island; Museo Gallery, Langley, Washington; and Jane McIntyre Design, Winchester, England. Pillows are also available through my website. Also, please visit the Live Happy Inspired blog. This San Francisco-based blog recently had a fun post pairing my pillows with furnishings/interior design. Finally, a big thank you to Leslie Wood of Chancellor Interiors for including my painting on her Hadley Court design blog in a post commenting on the current trends at High Point Market–a lot of pink and a lot of chinoiserie!
