I come from a long line of gardeners: Mom, Dad, grandparents on both sides, so the backyard garden is now and always has been super important to me. Every house I have lived in since leaving home has always had a private backyard, and when we lived in the crowded, congested city of Buenos Aires, I became fascinated with how urban folks created paradise in a city setting. From my sketches of suburban gardens to urban rooftops and patios, I have isolated details to create fabrics for quilting, apparel and upholstery as well as items for every day use. I hope that when you look at these images, you will feel peaceful and tranquil like you were in my backyard paradise. Thanks for looking!
