If you get my quarterly newsletter this may not be new news to you. But for everyone else, I have an exciting announcement: I have fabric! This has been a long-time dream of mine to be able to offer my designs on fabric and it is finally here! There are currently 50+ designs, in multiple colorways and 20 different types of fabric to choose from. More designs are added regularly so be sure to come back often.
I am partnering with a sister company of Canwil Textiles called Canvas ETC. They are a U.S-based, minority woman-owned company, that has served as a wholesaler to many businesses since 2002 and now is offering retail services catering to makers and crafters.
They are based in Auburn, GA with their facility for printing in India, where they adhere to high environmental standards in reducing waste and lowering carbon footprint. They also offer cut and sew services which are realized in Blue Ridge, GA so they can help you complete your individual projects, all made in the U.S.
If you have questions about anything you see on the site, just let me, or Canvas ETC, know and we’ll do our best to accommodate your request; and if you love a design that you don’t see on their site, just let me know and I’ll do my best to make that available for you.
Thanks for your support and I look forward to seeing what you do with these new fabrics!

More goodies from the backyard in Naples, Florida.
I've been in Florida at my family home for a few weeks visiting my Mom. She has the lushest backyard jungle and I love to clip various fronds that I use as inspiration for paintings. I started to photograph them, but then I got distracted and jumped in the pool.
I was driving down the street heading to Ocean Beach for my weekend walk, and out of the corner of my eye I saw this amazing blue color. I had to circle back so I could take a picture. If the light hadn't been hitting it just so, I probably would have driven right by.
My new walk to work takes me through Chinatown and it is such a change from my quiet jaunt down Bush Street. Yesterday, I saw live fish being delivered off a truck, women selling vibrant red gladiolas and cherry blossom branches, fruit stands being loaded up. The sights, sounds, and smells are so unique. It's definitely a different way to wake up in the morning! I just love the red and orange everywhere as they begin celebrations of the New Year of the Horse 4712.
It was my father's birthday a few days ago and I always like to honor him in a place that makes me smile. No better place than Ocean Beach at sunset. Missing you every day, Dad.
What a lovely color palette I see out my window. Makes me feel like I'm at a spa.
