prints charming




The joy of designing a print, first identifying the motif and then the repeat. One single item, placed, flipped, flopped all in a row forms a happy pattern. Prints have always provided whimsy to me.  I love a great print tie, a sash or a scarf.  It can add zest to an all solid ensemble. The french always have a certain saviour faire - a little print tucked into a pocket or tied with a non-chalant touch.   I can take a frog and turn it into a "prints charming" tout suite!   Sport a silk print and feel the charm. These prints were produced on silk twill for ties fit for a Prince.

Hi there, I was just telling Ronda when we met how much I loved the masthead illustration you made for her blog. It's so whimsical and elegant!
I'm off to explore your blog now...

You are truly so talented! Your post has inspired me to turn off the computer and reach for the sketch book for the rest of the evening.

Look out Hermés... have you considered contacting them? Or perhaps Ferragamo? These prints are worthy of a luxury tie.
