The finalists for our Fabric Design Contest have submitted their secondary designs, so while we get them ready to be judged, we thought we would share the designs with you and a little bit about the designer…
Meet Leslie Walton, designer of “Happiness”
Leslie was born and raised in Peru where she met her husband of 27 years. There, she also studied Graphic Design at the School of Fine Arts of the Catholic University of Lima, Peru. Now, she lives with her family in rural Lancaster County, PA. Leslie is currently an artist and designer for a company in the home décor and gift industry. She has also done freelance work and taught art to several gifted students. For her own personal art, she draws inspiration from her family, whom she adores, and seasons of her life that have been important to her.
This particular fabric collection was in fact, inspired by her first grandchild, Camille Elise. Leslie focused on portraying the softness and sweetness she sees in the little girl. She wanted to create the sense of warmth and happiness Camille brings to her life. In short, she tried to imagine the gentle contentedness, bold joyfulness and quiet thoughtfulness she wishes for her granddaughter. This collection has been a labor of love.
