Now I'm applying my digital painting and drawing to creating patterns for textiles and gift wrap. Here's an example of my gift wrap (right). It's heavy-duty paper with a soft sheen.

Here are several of the fabrics I've designed and have begun making product prototypes. So far I have made dresses, pillows, tea towels, and the table runner I showed you all recently. My sewing coach and teacher, Connie Walker-Shaw at SEW helped me create this first series of textile products. (see http://www.walkershaw.com).

The thumbnails below do not show the full image of the scarf, but if you want to order one (yes, I am starting slowly...there will soon be an online shop), so for now, each can be made into a 36" square scarf or a 20" x 60" rectangular (long) scarf. They are made-to-order in lovely Silk Crepe de Chine.
