About the Design:
This is the full color edition with my maypop block. After years of experimental artist proofs, I have finally dialed ink the inks and techniques for a full color edition from this block. The design features an ultra detailed flowering and fruiting passionflower, or “maypop” as I always called them. These exotic (and delicious) native plants grew wild along the local railroad tracks when I was a kid, and even as an adult I don’t think I’ll ever tire of staring at their delicate flowers and bold fruit. (Note: this cost of this print is slightly higher on this color edition, because the inking process takes significantly longer. See process pics!)

I’d been admiring Katie’s work for some time when I snapped this one up as soon as I saw it. I couldn’t resist the lovely color combo. Had it framed locally in Wake Forest, and it’s now proudly and prominently displayed in the entryway of our home. The colors are vibrant, and the artistry is truly one of a kind. Now I’m off to purchase some adorable turtle moon bookmarks for teacher gifts! Hope to one day make it to one of the craft fairs to thank Katie in person. It’s a win all around to support a local artist, local frame shop, and share the beauty with everyone who visits my home.
My most recent order from New South Pattern House arrived and as usual, I was blown away by its beauty. The vibrancy of color, the clear lines, and the texture of the full-color purple and yellow Maypop is stunning. I can't wait to see what Katie comes up with next - every piece is a welcome addition to our home and fills our hearts with joy!
This was a gift to my daughter, and I shipped it to her house. So I didn't see it myself, in real life, but she LOVED it!
Sent as a gift and it looks beautiful where my friend put it in her house!!
Arrived quickly and well protected. Can't wait to get it framed!!!
