    I want to welcome you to view my new spring creations. There are over a dozen new themes I am presenting, each containing multiple variations with each piece being unique.  The inspiration for this series is Flora and Fauna . Animals and animal prints as well as flowers have always been used in fashion and depicted in fine art. I am talking these two mediums and combining them together into these exciting new pieces.

    This theme is available in the 26”x26” as well as the 26”x40” formats. The background is created by embroidering directly through luxury boxes and them collaging those pieces into a background. The tigers are both embroidered as patches and then collaged onto the background. The lettering is created using luxury scarves, appliquéd and then mounted in relief over the background. The pieces was finished with a smattering of embroidered butterflies dimensionally mounted. This theme is available with any brand of boxes used as a background as well as the tigers and lettering stitched in any color combination.

    Large Horses

    Most luxury brands started to outfit equestrians with the proper clothing and gear and over 100 years later horses and equestrian iconography are still very present in luxury design. This season I am presenting two new horses.  The background is created by embroidering directly through luxury boxes and them collaging those pieces into a background. The first horse is created using pom-poms that are created using luxury scarves. Each pom pom is handmade and placed. The second horse is a silhouette of a horses head with a pom-pom main. Each finished piece measures 26”x26”. The horses can be created with any brand background as well as color scheme.

    These pieces are available as a 26”x12” or 12”x12” arrangement. The largerbackground is created by embroidering directly through luxury boxes and them collaging those pieces into a background. The smaller stampede is created using a luxury bag or box that is embroidered and mounted as a background. All of the horses in the stampedes are created using up-cycled luxury scarves that are stitched and then laser cut onto the box. The stampedes are available in any color combination as well as any luxury brand. 

  • Exploding Bags Exploding Bags

    Exploding Bags

    Exploding bags.

    For these pieces, since I use luxury bags in the creative process I wanted to recreate a shopping bag into the pieces. This piece starts with a luxury bag that is deconstructed, embroidered and then reconstructed back into a bag shape. Luxury scarf remnants are then draped and mounted so they appear to be flowing out of the bag. Embroidered butterflies are then dimensionally mounted to appear exploding out of the bag. These pieces are available in both 12”x26” sizes as well as 26”x40” sizes. They can be created using most luxury brands and color combinations depending on chosen size and availability. 

  • Typography Typography Typography Typography Typography

    Typography

    Typography pieces.

    Whether you are purchasing a single piece or creating a large arrangement a typography piece is a perfect addition. They are all created in a similar manner. The background is created using luxury boxes that are deconstructed, embroidered and then reconstructed as a background, luxury fabrics can be used instead of the collaged background on the smaller pieces. The lettering is created using luxury scarves that are embroidered, later cut,  then mounted in relief. Butterflies are then dimensionally added to the piece. Here is more information on the three new styles.

    Double Love

    This piece measures 12”x26” and is available in any brand and color combination.

    Single Love

    This piece measures 12”x12” and is available in any brand background or Louis Vuitton, Gucci, or Goyard background.

    True Love - This piece measures 26”x12” and is available in any brand or color combination.

    Luxury Fabrics

     

    These pieces are created using luxury fabrics as a background. The fabrics are obtained by deconstructing purses and bags. Louis Vuitton, Goyard and Gucci are all available. Once the bags are deconstructed they are embroidered with beautiful flora scenes and then mounted as a background. Embroidered butterflies are then added to the pieces. There are always new styles being added in this category. Due to the availability of the bags certain color combinations may be limited at times. The luxury fabric boxes are available  in the 12”x12” size.

  • Animals Animals Animals Animals

    Animals

    When creating large arrangements, I like to mix typography, small scale designs like butterfly monograms as well as large silhouettes, having those different scales of pieces creates in my opinion more visual interest in the design. This season I have created a few new silhouettes, the zebra and the leopard. They are keeping with the Flora and Fauna theme and are both visually striking. The are created in a similar fashion. The backgrounds start with a luxury box that is embroidered directly through the Box and then mounted on the background. The animals are both created using a combination of luxury scarves and direct embroidery. The animals are available on any brand of box and of course, any color combination.  The animal Silhouettes are available in the 12”x12” and 26”x26” sizes. The larger size will have a collage background. 

  • Fabric Borders Fabric Borders Fabric Borders Fabric Borders Fabric Borders

    Fabric Borders

    These are exciting pieces that explode with color. I use luxury scarves in quite a few of my pieces but since they are often cut up into tiny pieces you done really get to see the beauty of these elements so I decided to use them in an additional way. These new pieces are created using a border of luxury scarves remnants. Each of the four sides of the frame are cut out if matte board and then wrapped in luxury scarves. They are then mounted as a frame and an embroidered luxury box is mounted dimensionally over the frame. The boxes can either be a butterfly monogram or an abstract like the brand new spot abstract that I created. The colors of the box will coordinate with the embroidery for truly spectacular results. These pieces are available with most any brand but the colors can be limited to what I currently have available in the studio. The frames are available in the 12”x12” size.

  • New Yarn Pieces New Yarn Pieces New Yarn Pieces New Yarn Pieces

    New Yarn Pieces

    These pieces are created with a very rare yarn/embroidery machine. I am currently one of the only people in the country that owns on of these machines. Each stitch is drawn by hand on my computerized drafting tablet and then sent to the machine. The machine then floats the yarn over the top of the box and stitches it place.  They end result is an expressive and textured piece of art. I have been creating yarn embroidery for over a year now and I am excited to bring you two new yarn floral designs for spring. The flowers are available in the 12”x12” size and can be stitched on any brand of box in any color combination. There are also 2 new yarn hearts available in the 12"x12" size as well. 

  • Bees Bees Bees Bees

    Bees

    I have received requests for bees over the past year so I decided to add embroidered bees to my repertoire. The pieces start with an embroidered box that has honeycombs and smaller bees, once the box is stitched it is mounted. The  bees are created in a similar fashion to my butterflies.  They are all embroidered and then hand cut. The wings are stitched separately and then attached. Once finished the bees are dimensionally mounted to the background. The bees are available in 12”x12” pieces and in any brand of box. 

  • Serpents Serpents Serpents Serpents

    Serpents

     

    The snakes are available in 26”x12” and 12”x12” sizes. They are both created in the same manner. Each snake is created with hundreds of silk appliqué pieces. The silk is created from solid silk twills mixed with silk luxury scarves.  The snakes are stitched directly through the luxury boxes. Once the snakes are finished embroidered butterflies are added to the piece to add dimension. The large pieces are created using a collage background and the smaller ones from a single box. The snakes will make a striking addition to your installation and are available in any color combination and brand of box.

    Butterfly Monograms

    The butterfly monograms are the staple pieces to any of my installations and they are the ones that started it all! I have new styles for spring as well as old favorites still available. They are available in any size configuration as well as any style of box and there are always new variants being added. Some of the new styles are the Hermes Kaleidoscope where the butterflies spiral around the center as well as the single breeds, where the same breed of butterflies are stitched in different sizes and displayed.
