what a treat it was to discover the talented local artist allison rose this past weekend. she creates wonderful hand silkscreened pieces, pillows and mixed media textile art for her company, blue thimble. allison is a graduate of the rhode island school of design. she has a self-described obsession with silkscreens and even teaches a beginner’s course over at the lill street gallery.
did you examine her fabrics in these photos? she uses a monoprint technique, which is very labor intensive. the fact that some of her designs have 50 prints on them is a real testament to her commitment and love of her craft.
what an inviting, vivid, thorough collection.
run to her etsy shop and see for yourself!
