When we travel, even locally, I take pictures. And, the beautiful California coast inspired this scarf…actually, California has inspired an entire scarf collection.
Every time we have an out-of-town guest I’m excited to show them all the wonderful sites throughout California. Whether it’s making a long weekend trip to Northern California, the Central Coast, or staying in Southern California and making day trips, I want them to experience the richness of the state I know and love.
As we’ve traveled throughout the state, I’ve lovingly photographed each trip. These photos always bring a smile to my face as I remember the wonderful times we had.
Looking through these photos, I was inspired to transform a few into watercolor paintings for our home. As an artist I wanted to translate my love of California into a form of wearable art, so I decided to print a few of these watercolor images on silk scarves. This is how the Bring California Home Collection was born.
I would like everyone who visits our amazing state to go home with a bit of California. Something special that reminds them of the great time they had during their visit. Something that takes their time in California and weaves it into the fabric of their every day lives. My scarves do just that.
