artist spotlight: josephine kimberling

Today I am excited to share with you a very talented textile designer and one of my very best friends, Josephine Kimberling. Josephine's designs are clean and fun with colors that make me feel like a kid in a candy store! She is a master of color and arranging them in a way that is fresh and unique. Her second collection with Robert Kaufman was just released!

I really want a bed quilt made from her "Glam Garden" collection. I love the oranges and pinks mixed with the blues and greens!

Josephine and I meet many years ago working for the same company. After a few years of working with each other, we realized we had more in common than we thought. She is the one person I call when I am creatively stumped or needing some creative encouragement. Her sincerity and good energy are reflected in her wonderful designs.

I was so excited to be able to meet up with Josephine
while in New York last month. What a nice treat for me!
