Guess who?

A sneak peek into my new book.  Very excited to be working on this over the summer.


A lesson in trying to paint in front of a tough audience!

I'm at the Metropolitan Museum of Art... 


Notes scattered all over my studio!

Landing onto a new scarf (for the Met)



Colors for my new very fancy scarf

Do you like these colors?  I have a hard time designing for winter and fall.

The jewels came from the archives under the Met's stage.


Opera Scarf in progress

After sketching out a few ideas I drew a long string of pearls to use as a free-flowing border and thought it was classy enough for opera lovers!  I'm coloring it all with jewel tones 


Jewels of the Opera

Welcome to my Blog!

My next project for the Met Opera is to design a ‘Jewels of the Opera’ scarf. For inspiration I was invited down into a maze of tunnels down below the stage into the archives. It was thrilling.......

and everything I had expected it to be. I went back in time to the 20’s

Cesar’s crown in Cleopatra and Carmen’s necklace.

Now to design a scarf! A first rough sketch....I’ll post the design when it’s finished.
