More about the Artist:
As a child, Sandra Fromson learned the skill and art of sewing from her mother. This life-long interest has evidenced itself in a variety of textile projects, from quilt-making to explorations in fiber.

Last year Fromson began making Butterfly coats and capes. She saw an opportunity to combine her loves of gardening and sewing and created the Pansy Coat and Monet’s Garden vest. Vividly hued both pieces are reversible, each revealing intricately composed passages of mixed colors that move through the fabric in curves and swirls. The amethyst colored Pansy Coat has a crumpled surface that allows hints of pink and gray to appear.
