Welcome To Stormy Bay Designs!
Hello! So today I thought I’d take a minute to write a little post about the inspiration behind my designs.
There are many things that inspire me, but first and foremost it is mostly the forms, patterns and textures found in nature. You know that moment when you are scrolling through Pinterest and you come upon a macro image of lichen, a skeleton leaf or even fungi? Yep! And you wow – aren’t these natural forms little works of art.
A little bit about me!
For my first blog post on TBCH I thought it appropriate to explain the textile art technique that nearly all my goodies contain.
I have always created even when I had a young family and a challenging career but since retirement and sampling many art forms I have been captivated by a contact printing technique that allows me to combine all of my passions. My garden, slow stitching and creating unique cloth and paper.
