Musings about nature and handknits

Thoughts about the forest and the woods, the earthy rich colors and smells of nature are influencing my drawings. Wooly handknits, created from hand spun yarns, in deep rich hues are mixed with torn cloths and imaginative stitches to create clothing that feels and looks like they've been swept from the floor of the forest. Twigs, leaves, moss or feathers are combined into capes and hats. Soft layers of silky skirts or velvet leggings feel cozy and natural with pretty suede boots and slippers. Hats are sketched with horns, feathers, veils and hearts. They spin high on the crown, like one worn by a princess in the woods.
