I have a ‘katillion’ (that’s a new one courtesy of my ten year old) photo’s of words.  Seems that having a katillion books in every room is still not enough…

I mean fair enough. We all love a catchy little quote now and then, and hopefully some more.

Jean Charles de Castelbajac (yes we know, another bit of an obsession but here you begin to see why…) not only frequently includes text on his fashion, he packages his work with additional addictive thoughts.

My dresses are wrapped in this tissue which I can’t bring myself to throw away….. (and note to my friend Jen, wielder of that coveted 80′s JCDC coat covered in quotes from Proust – ‘I will have it one day Jen, I will‘.

I’m even more pleased when it’s obscured…..and on the streets.

Probably I secretly long to be Nagiko and just have them all over me.

all around me…in Twombly’s….


and Puckette’s (and you may say this is not a word so to speak…but to me it is)

    Braque’s work of art seems to me to be a musical piece, light and free, with touches of drama!

    We think much the same…

    I wanted you to know…The 2012 Artist Series Feature on Anita Rivera, Designer & Paper Artist, is on my site! She is amazing!
