I titled this post before remembering that 2010 is actually the year of the tiger in the Chinese zodiac. A fitting animal for my very striped year! The stripes and polka dots of layered color are another way for me to visually pop the pattern and draw the viewer’s eye around a form. Plus, I’m having fun deriving influence from here. In the last 10 years, my work has evolved from just ornate to (I hope) elegant, and now I’m entering my…joyful?…playful?…perky?…stage!
Most of these are —or soon will be!— listed in my Online Store for the holidays.
