It is hard to believe that it is officially Spring! The studio move was a bit of a setback, but I am definitely back on track to roll out the next collection this year. Lately I have been working on some gouache florals that should make for some great textile patterns. For those of you who are unfamiliar with gouache, it is an excellent paint to create flat and consistent color for textile designs. Cleaning up an image in the computer is much easier when the color is smooth. The next collection will be very colorful and full of detail, with some new illustrations coming your way as well. Stay tuned for the launch!

It is hard to believe that 2017 is officially in full swing! The holidays brought a whirlwind of events, orders, and a big studio move. That's right - we have officially moved into a bigger studio! Now that things are more spread out, 2017 will bring some new additions to the business. I can't announce the new items yet - but some very cool things are in the works, including a new collection! Don't forget that Valentine's Day is approaching, and what better way to celebrate than to give a loved one something completely unique and elegant, such as our 'Celandine' table runner pictured above? I love how the 'Celandine' pattern is such a conversation starter, with it's beautiful color palette and intricate line work. So cheers to 2017 and stay tuned for all of the exciting things in the works for Janice Nelson Designs!

I am happy to announce that art prints are now in the shop! These original illustrations came from the pages of my sketchbook - and were all drawn with fine black pen. I used many of them in my textile designs for home products. Now you can decorate your couch and your walls! All are printed on radiant white high-quality 100% cotton acid-free paper with archival inks, so you don't have to worry about fading. Each one is signed and dated by yours truly, and shipped off in a plastic sleeve and packaged for safe transit. Check them out under the "Art" section of the website! These make great gifts!
