The Mountain Print was transformed out of a series of photographs of the Rocky Mountains. By blending the opacity levels and original colors with dusky pastel shades, a new pattern of soft, rhythmic textures is created.
The Landscape Print captures a topographic view of the Rocky Mountains. The original photographs are intensified and abstracted to the point at which only shadowed outlines of the mountains remain.
The Hybrid Print presents a surreal vision of hybrid flowers. To create this pattern, images of different flowers are digitally deconstructed and reassembled into a new species.
A calming variation of the Hybrid Print, the Aquatic Print consists of outlined flowers disrupted by a digital glitch-like effect.
An interpretation of Alexander Calder's mobiles, the Kinetic Print is an ink painting of dancing figures that captures the lightness and playfulness of the artist's ethos.
At the maritime trade gallery in Singapore, a collection of 9th century Tang artifacts had been recovered from a shipwreck. Encrusted with corals, the artifacts expressed new textures that inspired this luminous web-like pattern.
Colored in chalk, yellow-gold and silvery blue, the Fossils Print is a deconstructed pattern inspired by the rock-like skeleton left behind by coral polyps.
On the fourth day of the year, a Cooper's Hawk landed on my balcony. To mark this rare sighting, a symbol of hope, the Glide Print is a sketch of the hawk, illuminated in electric blue and fluorescent green.
To create the effect of a raised texture, I first embroidered a pattern of the tulip magnolia tree. The pattern is then digitized with a delicate blue-rose tint, an inverse color tone inspired by cyanotype printing.
Types of fabric
1. Natural and bio-degradable fibers such as mercerized long-staple 100% cotton and silk that are tightly woven with increased durability and sheen, gentle and comfortable against the skin.
2. Tencel-lyocell fibers, a regenerated wood-pulp fiber (from eucalyptus or bamboo) by which raw cellulose is dissolved in an amine oxide solvent which is non-toxic and reusable. Tencel is easy to care for and has a silky and breathable quality.
3. Polyester-blends for sturdier garments such as jackets and trousers which are intended for extensive wear and perform other functions such as water-repellant needs or provide stretch.
4. Plain-colored fabrics are sourced directly from a Japanese factory, an establishment which is transparent about the fiber content, fabric quality and the manufacturing process.
