Sticks-a-GoGo Art Cloth Welcomes The Bokeh Collection

Here at sticks-a-gog0 Art Cloth, I am pleased to introduce the collaboration between our current collection with the Bokeh Collection. These two collections work together creating an aesthetically pleasing art form. An art form viewed on fabric for the discerning sewist/designer.

Along with the new collection, I am excited to be a part of the Shutterfly/Spoonflower collaboration.

Surface Design

Here at sticks-a-gogo Art Cloth studio, the new year brought on a flurry of activity.  Many new ideas, opportunities and abundance of possibilities expand the focus of our creative space.

Sunflower on a Telephone Line, is the first Art Cloth design of 2021 entered into a competition with Spoonflower.  The competition is for licensing the design for Spoonflower packaging.

I am fascinated with the art of Vincent Van Gogh and his Sunflowers.

A Photograph

Mobile Photography is the future of the art form.  Discrete intimate and always accessible to capture a moment. –  David S. McNamara

Photographs are said to preserve a moment in time, chronicle a piece of history, and refer to the ephemeral.  Does the act of photo manipulation rewrite the history documented in the original photograph? I don’t use photos as a memory aid, but as a way to manipulate color, patterns and shape.  I decided to co-mingle technology with textiles producing sticks-a-gogo Art Cloth.

For the last two years, I’ve produced images for surface design on fabric.  Below are two examples, showing the original image and the resulting surface element.
