An artist’s studio reflects their many muses. It is a space where they explore themselves and create through the influence of cultural, personal and societal circumstances.
The female artist's studio is enchanting and nuanced, encompassing a breadth of energy used to express creative intuition and distill what’s within.
This collection recognizes the legacy of female artists who paved the way at a time when women were unable to live fully in the truth. The work of these women, remarkable in their essence, is brought to light in the form of painterly textiles.

"Creative art is for all time and is therefore independent of time. It is of all ages, of every land, and if by this we mean the creative spirit in man which produces a picture or a statue is common to the whole civilized world, independent of age, race and nationality; the statement may stand unchallenged."
-Alma Thomas, 1970
