I've been working on a new line lately, inspired by the vivid colors of the Yucatan. The azure blues of the ocean, the yellow/greens of the lush vegetation, the desaturated reds and oranges of old hacienda walls and the texture of Mayan artifacts all combine for a vibrant new collection.
My connection to Mexico is strong. I was born there, and my sister and brother-in-law own a historic hacienda hotel in Merida, Hacienda Xcanatun. I love ambling around the lush gardens soaking it all in. So very different from the cool light and softer hues of New England! I also use photos I take in Mexico as image transfers on polymer - the blue plumbago picture is one of my favorites!
