I recently visited my father in the suburbs of Seattle. He is a collector of sorts and an artist. He is a self taught artist and has been making work for the past 15 years. Artwork is hanging everywhere! Even in the bathroom! Photographs and rare old books are stacked high in piles. I did not have time to steal his good books. I took photos of my favorites.

Below is a picture of my grandmother in a really cool frame with a collage in the background that my dad made.

I guess you can say he is also a bit of a hippy. One of his favorite posters in the guestroom.

My grandfather posing with dice. OG!

Took this unusual card from my dads collection. It is so surreal! Pink bubble magic!

More bubbles....

Images from a book my dad found recently. I think it was a student collaboration (reed college in California) from the early 1960's-70's. Below are a couple of pictures that were in the book. It is full of hand calligraphy, poems, photos, and artwork.


Below are collages that my dad made. Not sure when he finished them? Funny how he uses fashion often in his pictures!

Spring Patchwork

I can't believe it is yet another year and a new collection of prints!
I dug deep into my old boxes of photocopies and random inspiration. I have always loved the photocopier. I love to distort, blow up and morph images. I am currently cutting paper shapes and creating collages for my new designs.

Patchwork, quilting, rugs, and geometry back to my textile roots!

One of the many interesting images from my favorite book: Soviet Costumes and textiles 1917-1945. I love all the prints!

Work in progress!



I love this image! Pattern everywhere!

Pattern people!


I was recently mentioned in the New York Times blog T. MAC: Modern Appealing Clothing based in Hayes valley had a nice article written up about them and mentioned Serial Cultura. MAC is a great store (my favorite!!!) and run by amazing people! Ben and Chris Ospital are very kind and supportive of local artists and designers. They also have amazing international designers and some of my favorites such as Tsumori Chisato, Zucca, and Martin Margiela. How flatterning for my line to hang with the best! Serial Cultura will be in the MAC store coming this May. Click on the article below to read about MAC!


Not sure who out there owns a dress, top, or scarf of mine?
I would love to feature and meet the stylish people out there that own a Serial Cultura garment. Rachel Hayes is a good friend of mine. We studied Textiles/Fiber at the Kansas City Art Institute. She is now living with her Husband (a painter) in NYC. She makes amazing installations with plastic, fabric, and vinyl. Eric her husband is also talented painter. I love their work! She is wearing one my printed dresses from my very first collection. I would love to get an email of anyone wearing Serial Cultura! Check Rachels and Erics blog here: The Life Pursuit
