Blue Iris Ink Collection
This collection was created out of an experimental painting exercise.
I had a bouquet of fresh-cut iris in the kitchen. One of the blossoms had wilted and was dripping color on the countertop.
I pulled out a paintbrush, watercolor paper and started painting with the pigment. It was fun to watch the purple dye, turn blue as it dried on the page.
Within the floral shapes of this design, you'll notice small fragments of the actual flower petal. This detail makes the iris an actual part of the composition.

I enjoy the process of creating product concepts with the designs I make.

This collection was illustrated and designed with the stationery and gift wrap market in mind. It also works well for craft fabric.
The colorful stripes are inspired by Japanese washi tape. They bring a pop of color and a positive vibe to the products it's applied to.
