Textile Design

Judith’s passion for textile design is foundationed in her belief that designs in repeat, when created in the manner of fine art, can become captivating statement pieces that transform the rooms in which they are hung. While the borders of the canvas delineate the creative space for most artists, textile design necessitates a curiosity about what will occur beyond the frame. Judith loves this challenge, as well as the joy of rendering the nuances of the natural world and the flexibility of a borderless, infinite pattern. All original art is pastel on paper. Some of the original pieces are available for sale, with all designs available in archival reproduction prints in custom dimensions. Judith holds the copyright to all textile patterns visible below; for information about licensing agreements please contact the artist.

This piece was inspired by the black of the American Crow and the amber fruit of the woody-stemmed quince bush. Black, often a color that evokes thoughts of disguise and secrecy, is brought to the foreground as the crows proudly punctuate the subtler tones of leafy green, mellow amber and dusty lavender. The crows are rendered slightly smaller than life size.

This piece highlights the relationship between the oft-admired Monarch Butterfly and the frequently misunderstood Milkweed. Milkweed, considered by many to be a pest, is an edible wildflower that basks in the sunlight of both fallow and cultivated fields. The sanctuary of choice for a Monarch Butterfly to lay her single egg, the hatched caterpillar then grows rapidly by feasting on the milkweed leaves. Within a few weeks, the young caterpillar pupates into a golden-trimmed chrysalis. Here, the adult Monarchs have found a home amongst the summer Milkweed flowers. The dark background captures the sheltered atmosphere of the dense patch, while also drawing attention to the intricacy of the Monarchs’ wings. 

Wrens in the Rugosa


Design in repeat, Original: Pastel on Paper, 42”x 25.5”

Floating in a distressed gilded wood frame, 46.25”x 29.5” - $5,000

Available in: Prints on Paper, Wallpaper, Linen, and Canvas.

Wrens in the Rugosa is a whimsical design meant to remind us of the freedom brought about by letting go of thorny attitudes towards ourselves and others. If you are traversing the shores of New England in May or June, you will likely smell the Rosa Rugosa before you see it. The powerful floral scent is attractive, and the thorny thicket of the rose bush makes excellent refuge for foraging Carolina Wrens.Their free spirits are most evident when they emerge from their protective hideaway, ascending effortlessly into the salty summer air. This design has been adapted into several block-printed fabric patterns; see “Textiles.”
