Alyssa Salomon – Richmond, VA
Blue Skies Workroom came about in 2015 when artist Alyssa Salomon wanted to offer well-considered, hand-printed home textiles to friends and neighbors to use, enjoy and give. Blue Skies Workroom now designs and produces tote bags, zippered pouches, aprons, napkins, tea towels, artist books, journals and cards.
Alyssa has always loved working with cloth and paper. Her grandfather was a tailor in Brooklyn NY and allowed her to touch voluptuous, luminous bolts of woven wool. As a small girl, Alyssa learned to sew from her mother, and as an established artist, Alyssa learned to screen print during a faculty retreat at Penland School of Crafts. Her favorite color is still fluorescent.
