I design and sell stamps and stencils for fabric or paper printing. I have a blog where one can find tips and tutorials plus thoughts about life and home decor. My professional background is in graphic illustration and commercial textile design. I spent a good part of the 1980s working in the textile industry of New York City, freelancing and selling original designs to home furnishing companies such as Cannon Mills, Springs Industries, Gear Design, Conran's, along with many others. After moving to Boston in the early 90's, I've freelanced-by-email. I worked for many years designing rubber stamp images for the wonderful people at Hero Arts in California and I've had a long and fruitful relationship with Great Arrow Graphics, a very friendly company in Buffalo, NY that hand silkscreens an extraordinarily beautiful collection of greeting cards.
