Remembrance of things past
A new friend of the blog wrote that she picked up on a 'new-Victoriana' vibe to my work. This really isn't intentional, but she's right.
I am definitely inspired by history, and certainly the Victorian era. Subconciously, my interest could stem from the fact that it was a time of political and social change for women.
Although I'm not making any kind of political statement in my designs, I am acknowledging our connection to the past.......
.....and honoring those women who came before us and 'created the thread' that allows us to speak with our own voices clearly and strongly.
