What inspired you about your partner's art?
Diana: It was certainly a challenge finding out the best way to print on fabric. The techniques just don't give you the same detail and color accuracy as the photo printers I'm used to dealing with. So the printed fabric itself became something a bit different than the original photo.
Were their any roadblocks or setbacks?
Lisa: Not really, just that it took me awhile to decide which direction to go in...once I decided it was very enjoyable making this project.
Diana: The biggest roadblock was that I couldn't find a fabric printing method I was happy with. It took me a long time to even bring my best results to Lisa, since I wasn't thrilled with them. But once I got over that self-critical attitude, and actually showed the pieces to her, she convinced me that we should use them. And she was able to create something beautiful!Did you find this to be a rewarding experience and why?
Lisa: Very rewarding and fun, how could it not have been being able to use Diana's gorgeous photography?
Diana: Definitely. Lisa was a joy to work with. It's exciting to see my art as part of her art. It's now something more than just what I could have done with it. And that's a pretty special thing.
