This artist creates a Cuisinart of abstract mirror designs borrowing bits from Victorian, Edwardian, paisley, and art nouveau. She also draws orphan cars, and adapts a few very old ads. Most of her work is hand drawn with twists, vines & Celtic knots.

Despite their reputation as stern and severe moralists in high buttoned collars and spectacles, the Victorians were really a trippy psychedelic lot. They loaded ornamentation on top of ornamentation, put pineapples at the bottom of chair legs, and even were known to have special dishes and forks for things like asparagus. Who can really look at what these people left behind and not think they were having fun?
And, as for all the myth about them not having any hanky panky and never, ever letting any limbs show because they were indecent? Isn't the fact that you are here proof that can't be true? Your mother came from somewhere, and her mother came from somewhere. And they did not have IVF in Victorian days. And kids don't come from cabbage patches. This design is my attempt to channel the Victorian aesthetic for modern times. It is full of stars, and bubbles, casual flowers, leaves, and buds, and tangled branches and vines. I can almost hear William Morris screaming from his grave about how much work he had to do to get a design to look like this, and how easy we have it with computers. There is no actual William Morris art in this abstract graphic, but I think it feels like it could have been offered by his firm.

This is not a fabric available in the Spoonflower marketplace at this time.
They have been doing some behind the scenes experimentation since July, trying out various fabrics to fill niches they currently do not have a candidate in. The new synthetic Performance Knit was the result of one of these tests. When they run these tests they use real orders (with the designers knowledge and permission). I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to have my proof of this design included in one of these tests. Nobody can place orders in this fabric. Part of the test is how well designers like the fabric. But the test runs also judge how well the machines and the candidate fabrics work together. A gorgeous fabric that jams the machine will not pass the tests. So we will have to wait and see if this fabric becomes a new Spoonflower offering, or not.

What fabric did you use in the photo?
Actual close up print of this design on an experimental heavy duty fabric with a very large scale weave. Almost makes it look like a brocade.
