Art for Surfaces
Rochelle Weiner Carr brings together lifelong passions for fine art and graphic design to present a fresh portfolio in surface pattern design. The hand of the artist is present throughout this series of designs in which she layers painted surfaces with contrasting patterns, hand markings and rich color palettes to create a body of work is varied, fresh and joyful.
Some of the world’s greatest beauties prefer the shadows. My shade garden is full of hidden blooms, colorful leaves, woody mushrooms and dark winding undergrowth. These designs would be ideal for fashion or home fabrics, wallpaper, floor coverings, and upholstery.
A collection of pretty edges, pristine feathered creatures and precise geometric patterns in an array of fresh colors.
Inspired by traditional patterns from around the world overlaid on colorful watercolors and collages to land on unexpected results.
A selection of patterns featuring geometric loops and half loops overlaid onto abstract and colorful art pieces.
This collection is derived from a series of abstract paintings created using a resist method with powdered charcoal and watercolor on paper. These paintings were then scanned and made into repeating patterns within photoshop, with some surprise results.
Delicate watercolor brushstrokes forming flowers, leaves, flourishes and curlicues in fresh spring colors define this uplifting collection reminiscent of traditional Norwegian rosemaling.
Full of joyous color and holiday themes, this portfolio is a mixture of wood cuts, layers of watercolor washes and gestural brushwork.
