My years as a designer and pattern maker stood me well and imprinted in me an interest in the garment as well as an affinity for patterned surface.  The garment can be a powerful iconic form, beyond the cloth and stitch. It’s really more about the wearer than the worn, and so I have found it to be quite resonant. Take home one of these lovely fantasy garments for yourself!

Billie's Dress Triptych-Original

Price:

Lady Day, such a fabulous vocalist and songwriter! This triptych represents Billie Holiday wearing a dress that was depicted in a Romare Bearden painting called 'Empress of the Blues'. The shadow figures on her left and right are place holders for her songwriting as well as her voice. The center panel is a colorful woodcut print with the lyrics of one verse of God Bless the Child wrapped around the image. This was her original and she made it timeless.

Available as an original handprint, size 20h x 26" w. Also as a fine art print on archival paper, loose canvas, or stretched canvas in whatever size you might imagine. Use the 'Room View' button to see it in a room setting. 

Each of these garment handprints is created in small editions . Some have text around the image that creates a storyline for the print. I hand write each one of the text lines, as well as design the overall print, cut it with chisels on a block of wood or linoleum and print it on my press here in my studio. There are small editions for sale but when they are gone, the buyer can select a similar size and have it printed as a fine art print on either archival fine art paper or canvas.  All original artworks are shipped from my studio via Fed Ex, and your shipping fee is refunded back to you. In other words, it ships for free!
