Each of my designs are drawn by hand on tracing paper and the original drawing is the image used to expose the screen for printing. Drawing a repeat by hand is very time consuming, expecially when it's this intense, but it's also a process that I enjoy and I love the finished look of a hand drawn pattern since each of the elements that have been repeated are slightly different from one another. On the left is the tracing paper drawing and on the right is the design printed on linen. There is such satisfaction in printing a pattern for the first time that took so long to draw. I am really excited about this one- a design for my fall collection.

WOW! I print also, but that is some beautiful, tedious work. Great job!

As a fellow fabric printer, I can really appreciate the work you put into your hand-drawn designs. The results really are beautiful.
