A bit about myself: I’m a self-taught designer, and I find ways to work across many different media, including designing t-shirts, painting, drawing, jewelry-making, sculpture, photography, interior design, vintage upcycling and merchandising. Two String Jane was started to bring colorful, crafty and good quality clothing to everyone. When it comes to fashion, I focus on making designs that are wearable, easy to pair with and bold… playfully fun, really, since that’s what I think life’s all about!

A bit about my creative process: I draw my influences from the everyday simple things and turn them into wearable pop art. When I design, I start out by sketching a design on paper. Designs are then hand cut into stencils and from there I let the design speak to its own colors. I believe stenciling gives much richer textures and lends itself to more creativity.

The dyeing process: My original “Splash Dye ” technique creates vibrant splashes of color while staying environmentally friendly and more colorfast than traditional dyeing. It’s a modern interpretation of traditional tie dyeing which allows for more free-form patterns to emerge.

You can see more of what I’ve made by checking out The Goods, and if you’d like to get in touch with me about anything, use the form on the Contact page.
