Artists like to see their art enjoyed by many. To do this, artists extend the life of their creations in either a print or a postcard made from that original piece.
Recently, I was introduced to another way to make my art available for other purposes. Thanks to my fellow artist, Valentina, I found out about Spoonflower; a company that makes it possible for individuals to design, print and sell their own fabric designs. Valentina Ramos is a graphic artist whose designs are taking over the market. I don’t know how she does it, but she always finds new ways to introduce her art.

How exciting for an artist to see what they created on a canvas or paper made available as a piece of fabric. Imagine your art used on a pillow, a quilt, a skirt, a tablecloth, a placemat. I can go on and on with the ways to use these fabrics. Above are a couple of samples showing our designs. Valentina calls this series “Lila” and I call mine “Flower Power”, reminiscent of the 1960’s peace & love era. Stay tuned for many other ways that I will be sharing my art.
