088.. JEANNE BRADY
I live in Smithville, Tennessee - a rural town on Center Hill Lake, 1 ¼ hours east of Nashville, Tennessee.
My studios – a printing room and sewing space - are situated within my home
(I haven’t taken over the entire house… yet)!
The spaces are intimate yet fully functional; and when I am not gardening or cooking, they are where I happily spend my day.
I screen print and relief block print on fabric, specializing in distinctive textiles for daily use: cooking & garden/craft aprons, flour sack towels, potholder and buffet napkin sets, bandanas, and infinity scarves.
Both studios are critical to what I create. The print studio looks out on my veggie and flower garden where much of my design inspirations originate. It accommodates one padded print table, storage for my silk screens & squeegees, printing blocks and cutting tools, textile pigments, sink, essential tools, and gardening “stuff.”
My sewing space, once a spare bedroom, houses yards of fabric, a Serger, my grandmother’s 1941 Singer featherweight sewing machine, cutting table, rotary iron, copious tools, and thread.

Oh isn’t it lovely to see such a full but neat well laid out studio. I’d have put that iron at the top of my list. Initial reaction to prints on the wall, was Wow, Marimekko fabric with old design and bold colours I love. Great to know someone has their own take with inspiration from their own gardening efforts. A really inspiring way to begin may day.

An inspiring - yet comfortable - place to think, create and enjoy. Thank you for sharing some of your treasures!
