MaxEquations is a labor of love created by myself, Eve in partnership with my husband, Gary. He provides the business knowledge while I design our clothing and communicate with our customers. I have a varied background in the arts, as does Gary, but no direct experience in designing clothing until now. Strangely enough, I spent thousands of hours of my childhood drawing fashion designs. Who knew?
After the collection is designed, I work hand in hand with Linda Synder, our in house seamstress and pattern maker, who helps make my ideas come to life.
The clothing is then hand painted by our artist, Brian Metz. Our painted images are based on a seasonal theme determined by myself and designed along with Brian who paints each piece to order.
Textile art as jewelry. Earrings and a brooch. Strung with grace, colors chosen with style.
Evocative of childhood and creativity.
$30 for the set from Maria Cavallero.
Jim Bradshaw: Jim loves everything art and creative and puts that passion into all assignments. Humorous illustration and cartoon surrealism is what he is drawn to. Some topics you’ll find showing up in his recent work are dreams, the tyranny of time, life & death, childhood versus the tainted adult world we all exist in, good and evil and just plain fun whacked out made up worlds that swirl around in Jim’s brain.
So peaceful and relaxing, mostly because it is quite possible that I’ve found a houseplant I can’t kill!
LBRANDTerraria: My three little ones, 5 yrs and under, are the inspiration behind each design. They help critique my every garden. Tends to be quite a challenging panel to pass!
A number of my childhood summers were spent at a card table. Handmade pixie sticks, otter pops,creepy crawlers, and boondoggle bookmarks were some of what my summer sales conisisted of.
