Last night I was invited to celebrate the debut of new artisan inspired textiles by Madeleine O’Connell. I was so excited to see the same exotic, timeless, and vibrant colors in her textiles as in her oil paintings. I truly felt as though I was looking into a kaleidoscope.
Katie from Atelier Interior Designs stated that the quality of the fabrics are premium in silk or cotton/linen blend and are intended for upholstery and draperies and that they are also eco-friendly and printed in US. I’m now eagerly awaiting my fabrics which I will be using to make a few fabulous handbags which I’ll post in the near future.
Madeleine O’Connell’s textiles are based on 25 years of oil painting and are amazing works of art!! Katie Schroeder and Erika Runkiks of Atelier Interior Design found Madeleine through her fine art. Many of Madeleine’s oil masterpieces are originally inspired from textiles and evoke a quality and beauty that is undeniable.
What a great team! It is wonderful to watch one of Denver’s finest artist continue to grow and develop her astonishing talents. To see the fabrics, visit http://www.mwoconnell.com
