About the series:
Every place in this world has a specific color palette. It's unique to the region, created by the wildlife & plants that live there, the water that passes through it, and the makeup of the earth itself. As an aspiring naturalist and lover of the outdoors, I’ve always sought inspiration in my environment, but ever since relocating to South Carolina in 2010, I’ve begun to study it much more closely, through the lens of an artist but also an interior designer.
My background is in the field of commercial interior design, which I pursue in conjunction with my art career, and I’m constantly surrounded by samples and color swatches. These colors and textures give me such joy, whether I’m pulling finishes for a client or creating a mixed media fiber art piece in my studio. The Carolina Color Study Collection is the culmination of my favorite regional landscape views, topography, tonal gradients, and swatches of our regional color palette here in the Carolinas, all created through a mixed media fiber art process that includes needle felted wool fiber, punch needle yarn, and rug hooked fabric strips.
