We love sharing stories that matter. What's yours?
A fashion icon, an American business woman and an interior designer. And I got to meet her!
Iris Apfel was my first textile portrait!! Why? You ask? I will tell you!
I had seen several artists who had painted Iris Apfel. I love all the color and design that surrounds her. Old World Weavers, originally built by her and her husband, Carl, created fabrics loaded with texture and design.
In my mind I had Iris written all over me.
So I created her. Layer upon layer to include her jacket, blouse, collar, oversize necklace, iconic broach. And the most identifying part of her... the round black glasses.
Do you have a room that beckons for Iris? Layers of fabrics, pillows, texture and color?
