Janet Carlson

My name is Janet Carlson and my college degree and career were in fashion design within the Miami garment industry. Along the way, I’ve been quilting since high school. In September of 2005, I went back to night school to begin a mid-life career change into graphic design. It wasn’t until I was refreshing my fashion illustration skills by taking life drawing classes in a local art gallery in 2011 when I began creating these digital paper collages. This collection is a juxtaposition where fashion design and quilting meet up with Adobe Photoshop. My husband Daniel and I reside in Fort Lauderdale Florida, USA. This contemporary folk art is influenced by life in South Florida, where we are surrounded by people from every culture and nation. I work as a freelance graphic designer under the name Aquamarine Studio
