Anna Maria says:
My Tambourine collection welcomes you back to one of my favorite themes- folk art and handmade ornamentation. Tambourine is a diverse mix of imagery that celebrates nature, rhythm and fine details. The flora and fauna colored with moody and rich palettes go beyond the more typical cute folk look, but travel to more exotic and authentic places. In my research I was inspired as always by embroideries, kilims, and artwork but also by a few female painters from the Ukraine and Algeria that made art in the early to mid 20th century. These varied sources inspired strange beauty, joyous color and undeniable movement with prints that play between traditional and stream of consciousness. The broad variety in scale and texture of the feature and supporting prints offer endless inspiration for patchwork, as well as garments and accessories.

Anna Maria Horner grew up in a house full of her dad’s paintings and with a closet full of her mom’s handi-work. Beds were warmed by the hand-loomed wool blankets sent by her grandmother from Greece. The busy little bodies of her and her siblings were warmed by the beautiful hand-knits of their grandmother in Indiana. As a kid in the 70’s, she passed store-bought Barbie dresses and instead created her own from her mother’s fabric scraps. A simple start to a diverse path.
