Blue Valentine

Blue Valentine represents the beginning of a new exploration for me. For a long time, I have been interested in pattern - wallpaper, fabric, tile, fair isle - all kinds of pattern. With Blue Valentine, I experienced a sudden epiphany: I can put pattern in the background. The maroon dots in Blue Valentine were planned from the beginning - I wanted to break up a neutral background. It was as I was executing them that the aha came. So look for more pattern to come in up coming pieces. I am so excited!
