Experiments in Black + White


Papercut in black and white.

Lately I’ve been experimenting with different media, starting without color. Now I design all of my fabric collections in black and white before adding color, which allows me to focus on line and form, before clouding everything with color. And sometimes it doesn’t need color at all. If you have followed my fabric designs for a while, you may have noticed that I like to keep things simple.

I went years only wanting to make and sew functional objects, but now I just want to explore techniques. At this point, I don’t want to write instructions or draft patterns, but I’m not sure where I’m going with this.
