Watercolor is not the only way I use to express my art. I also paint on canvas with fabric paints to create decorative items that are usable. Pillow covers ,napkins ,throws can be made of neutral-colored fabric with a canvas painting sewn on to create unique pieces of art.

 

Pillow Covers

Hand-painted and hand-made, these pillow-covers are one of a kind designs. Fabric paint is used on canvas to create a watercolor-like painting, which is then sewn on to the pillow cover. The pillow cover is sewn from neutral-colored upholstery or cotton fabric and can be edged with a decorative trim. The pillow covers fit standard pillow stuffing that may be purchased at any fabric store.
Custom Orders: If you would like a custom-sized pillow-cover, provide your own fabric, or have a special theme, please contact me.

Cleaning: The fabrics paint and canvas that is used for the artwork allows washing in cold water and pressing. If the pillow-cover material is made of upholstery fabric or other non-washable material, the pillow cover has to be dry-cleaned.
