From Fine Art Photo to Wearable Art

When I set Nature as the Pole Star to guide my fashion design work with VIDA, I began combing through my digital archives to find my most arresting images.  The old photographers’ proverb never proved truer: for every really good “hit,” there are 10,000+ “misses.” Fortunately, in the huge haystack of pictures from my travels to Delaware, I found the sharp needle that is this post’s “Featured Image” and the artwork now featured on my “Autumn’s Mirror” set of accessories.

The VIDA Statement Bag, featuring bold, vivid prints, complete with genuine cow-hide leather straps, leather base, and trims, is the most coveted VIDA accessory of the year. The optical illusion of my “Bear Swamp Mirror” print—is it an abstract pattern or a natural illustration?—will turn heads and spark conversations – around town or across the world.
VIDA’s chic custom printed Leather Statement Clutch features a top zip closure and removable wristlet strap. This versatile accessory can be used as a wallet, tucked within the matching VIDA Statement Bag, or carried alone when you want to travel light.
With an opulent blend of Cashmere and Silk – featuring the optical illusions of my unique, stunning artwork – you can wear this beautiful scarf indoors or out, day or night, to elevate any wardrobe all season and year-long.

Would I rather be in Corkscrew Swamp?

This weekend, with daytime temperatures in Las Vegas hovering in the 40’s (F) and nightly temperatures falling into the 20’s, my answer is an enthusiastic “Yes!”  Alas, I am not flying to sunny southwest Florida any time soon, so reminiscing about my January 2010 trip to Naples and the Audubon Society’s sanctuary there will have to help me imagine I am keeping warm. Good thing I took a few photos.
