NEW Limited Edition socks with Smartwool

I am thrilled to announce I am the smARTwool Gallery Artist over at Smartwool this year and they just launched the socks I designed.  They turned out amazing and I could not be happier.

I have three different designs: Cosmic Poppy, Dancing Dots and Spring Fling.

Thanks to Mercedes Marchand for spotting my work and making this happen!  Smartwool has been delightful to work with. The experience is also what has inspired a transition into surface pattern design.  The act of deconstructing design elements from my paintings and making new designs out of those components was super exciting. Not knowing exactly how to make the leap from painting to surface design, I just happened to stumble upon this course that Rachael Taylor & Beth Nichols were offering.

Rachael has provided an insane amount of information that I'm still trying to catch up on, but I have to tell's been worth every single cent.  Who knows what the future holds...but I'm excited.  Oh, and there will also be a FALL 2012 collection of socks over at Smartwool to designed by yours truly.
