Santa Fe Colour!! Posted on 25 Jan 16:42

In a recent drive from the East coast to CO, we made a stop off in Santa Fe,,, a town rich in color, a thriving art scene, not surprising with its history and dramatic landscape.

Rich, earthy colors inspire artists in paintings and woven fabrics.

My favorite......The tile!!!

And not surprisingly the light is intense and the air crisp in January!

Morocco...And the historic town of Fes Posted on 21 Feb 09:29

You can't say there isn't color here. On the outside appears an ancient,dusty city wall on the inside a maze of market action. Art and crafters, butchers, herbalists, metal workers...donkeys. Each door way, window or furniture carefully removed, intricately refurbished with fresh colour and the finest of brushes. Methodical, precise, intricate.


Trip to Europe....First stop Portugal... Posted on 21 Feb 09:18

To kick start the dinnerware market's year I take an annual trip to Ambiente Houseware fair in Frankfurt Germany. As a side trip to inspire and create I flew into Lisbon and visited the fishing village of Sesimbra. Famous for its tiles and cobbled streets

Portugal was a delight to visit after such a long time. Its fishing industry thriving and was  celebrated everywhere from its murals, artwork and tiles everywhere.

Famous for its tiles and narrow cobbled streets, Portugal was a delight to visit after such a long time...Sesimbra's fishing industry was booming and was evident from all its art in tile form and murals.

UK Colour trend 2016 Posted on 14 Feb 01:37

I like to shop in the UK. Its colours and merchandizing are always an inspiration.

Here deep corals, greys and yellows flow from fabrics into stationary and in homegoods.

Lime greens and pale yellows with warm greys are my favorite.

Inspiring me to paint at home!!

Lots of Coral here, vivid and soft mixed with pale teal and more warm greys compliment each other.
