My name is Liz. I am a printer & cutter here at the Smoking Lily studio in Victoria. In my spare time I do hand-poked tattoos. Trish approached me in August to do a collaboration for our fall displays at the Victoria andVancouver shops. I excitedly scribbled out a bunch of drawings (flash) of tattoos I have done in the past year, and we both arranged them into a composition to use for wallpaper at the Milkman's Daughter and fabric for lighting at Smoking Lily Vancouver.
We had a fun day of decorating the wallpaper--dropping pigment by hand, and using any tools we could grab (toothbrushes, paintbrushes, eyedroppersandour fingers). Trish grabbed a piece of natural cotton/linen to add to the table so we could also create this one-of-a-kind Spadina dress (pictured above) for the display!
I was on vacation inPortland when the decorationswent up, but I think they look smashing! Drop by our Victoria or Vancouver stores totakea peek.
Here I am having a Garden State moment - tres inconspicuous!
