Ethnic

African Swirl/green

I guess all the contemporary influence here in Miami is starting to rub off on me. I modified a design from an old, African mudcloth I have, and then had fun with color. This ethnic, modern design lends itself to lots of versatile options for color combinations. I also see it in shades of black, [...]

Ethnic Designs

I love ethic designs! It is wonderful to travel the world, and discover the roots at the heart of a culture which are expressed in their designs. When I lived in New Mexico, it was hard not to become enchanted with the traditional Navajo designs prevalent in rugs, blankets and pottery. Ethnic designs are steeped [...]

Sacred Symbols/terracotta

I am so fascinated by sacred, universal symbols. They are found in almost every culture on the planet with often very similar meanings, and sometimes very different meanings. The sacred symbols I have used here in this design refer to fire, water, migration, the sun, the end, steam and homecoming. What a mix! A mix [...]

African Dance

I love African dance and to play the African djembe drum. I went to Mali in 2005, and went crazy over all the African fabrics. This design was inspired by some of those ethnic fabrics. It is without a doubt my most complex design ever. It's a tribute to African dance that is equally complex. [...]

Senegal Calabash

This is a most unusual design, yet when I first posted it to the site many years ago, it sold like crazy. I was so surprised! I love African fabrics with a passion. I took a book I had on African fabric design, and just put a bunch of different motifs together to create Senegal [...]

Rio Grande

Beautiful, old Navajo weavings came out of the Rio Grande valley. A friend gave me a book on all these weavings, and naturally I was compelled to make some designs, which are for the most part true replicas of the originals. Many of the weavings were designed to be rugs, but many were also blankets. [...]

A friend gave me a book on all these weavings, and naturally I was compelled to make some designs, which are for the most part true replicas of the originals. Many of the weavings were designed to be rugs, but many were also serapes, [...]

Hohokam

The petroglyphs found throughout the American Southwest not only leave traces of those who walked the Earth before us, but also offer us creative inspiration. This design is a tribute to the Hohokam, a Native American culture that thrived during the mid-15th century, known for their mastery in farming and irrigation canals. Sizes 2 x [...]
