Long Distance is inspired by some of my favorite motifs and craft traditions across cultures. It brings together Japanese printmaking processes alongside references to hand-painted French wallpaper and tiny delicate florals. Traditional elements are updated by a shift in scale and a contemporary color palette. Adding figures to these motifs creates a conversation across time and place, rooting these prints in the present. I love the variety of prints in this collection. Some feel bright and happy, like tiny celebrations on fabric, while others seem to whisper subtly to one another. Long Distance is life on fabric; it’s light and airy, dark and sophisticated, a collection of moments gathered together over countries and lifetimes.
