My Bright Eyes collection celebrates the extraordinary beauty found in ordinary, everyday surroundings and what happens if you keep your eyes bright and open. A vintage embroidered blouse, a woven blanket, a stack of hand-painted ceramics, gardens in light and dark, a visit from a family of finches that only lasts seconds. I’ve portrayed nature truly, as well as stretching the truth in versions that only happen in my eyes after a mindful studying of shape and form. When in New Zealand last year, I was hosted by a lovely family on a thousand-acre farm that I arrived to in the night. I woke to a stunning garden all around the property that was hidden by dark until an early pull of the window shade. I owe the poppies and much of the palette in this collection to the surprise, delight and exploration that followed. I hope you feel all the same glow and optimism sewing with these fabrics as I did in creating them for you.
