  • Verna Mosquera Pirouette

    One of the things I love about being an artist is that inspiration comes from everywhere and I never know when it will spark. Last January I was vending at a Southern California show and realized that my neighbour was one of my favourite booths that sold vintage buttons, ribbons and trim. Knowing it would be a danger zone for me I resisted the urge to step next door until the final hours of the show. It wasn’t minutes into my visit to the booth that I went from being a vendor to being an artist. One bit of trim led me to a wonderful button, to a gorgeous piece of delicate lace. As I collected the bits I ran next door and asked my assistant for a cellophane bag to put my collected treasures in. As the colour palette grew it reminded me of a painting I had seen years ago on a visit to Paris called Ballerina Dancers In Pink by Edgar Degas. The wonderful taupes, pinks and ivories were just stunning together. I had such a wonderful time gathering the vintage treasures. When I went home I pulled the image of the painting up on my computer. I was amazed to see the colours in my bag were spot on the colours in the Ballerina Dancers in Pink. Stunned that I could remember the beauty of the colours in the painting I knew this would be the start of my newest fabric collection, Pirouette.
