Light on sidewalk cast by reflection on newspaper stand

Years ago I noticed something that I dubbed “Urban Auroras.”

They are the shadows or reflections of reflective objects that cast a glow, curvy and distorted like the waves of a real aurora, by way of, and across the urban landscape.

This photo is of a small, yet vibrant example.

It was cast by a newspaper stand and in person was purple and green and pink.

This week I seem to have gone for bright colors and strong lines!  Enjoy!

Birthday Present

Full-Circle Bi-color Reversible Wrap Dress

Full-Circle Bi-color Reversible Wrap Dress
This is a dress I made for my friend Upsidedownasusual who lives in New York, she just caught up with me in years this Sunday, and though I’m late it’s her birthday present.  Hopefully, when she gets it, she’ll send me a picture as it is too small for me to put on to show you.  She is a dancer and circus artist, and so I made it flowier and fuller than the original.  Each half is a full circle!  An option that I think I’ll offer, because draped loosely on me, it looks great!

Happy (belated) Birthday Upsidedownasusual!

Red & Grey Flared Tee

Red & Grey Flare I

Red & Grey Flare II

Red & Grey Flare III

This is an up-cycled Tee inspired by the latest trends in color blocks and 1980’s industrial design color schemes.  Seeing a photo of something from one of this weeks runway shows with a colored pleat, I remembered a halloween costume my mom made me as a kid that had silk scarves in the gores.  Maybe I’ll make a costume like that for halloween this year!
