Lovely mistakes, misregistrations and surprises — this is what makes life interesting.
– John Robshaw

I came out of fashion, so I traveled a lot and I found different interesting objects from places such as India and Indonesia. This design (Labyrinth) actually came from a textile wood block that I forgot I picked up along the way.
– Sondra Alexandar

Alexander at work on her hand-painted wallcoverings. “When I’m in the studio, I forget about what’s going on in the world,” she says. “There’s something very Zen-like about it.”

“I love the way the paint just has its own mind and is never exactly the same,” says the New Jersey native. “I like the fact that it’s painterly, as opposed to looking like it’s printed.”
