Above: Design process from inspiration, to fabric design, to photograph, to image ready for production.

The artist designed fabrics inspired by the stories and printed them on fabric. The edge was sculpted into the shape of Nova Scotian shorelines, anchoring the fabric’s fluid nature. The fabric was photographed, then edited and translated into an image that the manufacturer could produce.
