In times of great change, there are golden opportunities for growth and connection. We are given the chance to see with fresh eyes, to rebuild, to begin again. To reconsider who we want to be, how we want to live, and how we want to love. Universal Love is about awakening to and connecting with the opportunities, surrounding ourselves with the messages that empower and support us, so we can empower and support each other.
This collection includes prints that were inspired by the diverse environments on our planet. Whether it’s the extravagant vegetation of Amazon Rainforests, wild animal kingdom of the African Savannah, or quiet beauty of Japanese gardens… It never ceases to amaze!
Mountains, Plants and creatures – bits and elements Ophelia imagines she would see in wildlife. This collection consists of large scaled prints on cotton duck fabric.
We used Sarah Kirsten patterns for many of our projects, and they could not have been more perfect with this new heavy weight substrate.
Birds & Branches started out as a fun, monochromatic exercise one April afternoon and blossomed into a celebration of avian splendor in every color of the rainbow. As I paint, I imagine the secret lives of these jewel-toned birds, because just like us, each one is an individual. Has Sergio alighted on this branch on his way to aerial tango lessons? Does Olga question the wisdom of indulging in one last juicy, golden berry? Henri is clearly going to a poetry reading in his jaunty beret, and as for the rest, I guess we’ll never know for sure—but we can always have fun imagining their colorful lives!
This collection illustrates a beautiful early morning walk in the woods, when the newly damp air is greeted by waves of dancing mushroom blooms and graceful garden snails. The collection was named after the small wonders under the timber trees.

A pile of pillows is all that’s required. Milk and cookies is just icing on the cake!
This jumbo square (the green variety of foam) which measures 24″ x 24″ x 6″ was a find at Joann’s and with the discount coupon was a great bargain. It’s light enough for a little guy to tug around – especially with the help of a handle on the side. Double sided in Moon & Sun with Midnight Sky around the edges and Branches as handles and piping, it just invites the kiddies to dive on it.
Catherine, who sewed all these wonderful items, said it was a struggle to get the cushion into the case, which is hand sewn on (not removable)- but perhaps a nice long hidden zip the full width of a side would have made it much simpler- and certainly easier to clean should the need arise.
We topped it with a couple of pillows in Branches and Woolen Blanket. The ruffles add a touch of whimsy… even this little action hero dude can’t deny they’re fun.
