Featured Artist : Gary Erickson & Hari Rollins
Artist Bio / Statement
My partner Gary and I have been hand-painting anything and everything connected to ladies' and men's attire for 25 years. We started on Maui, buying three t-shirts at a whack. In 1980, we started buying items from Dharma, and our business grew to supply a very comfortable living.
From October through April, we sell men's and ladies' handcrafted clothing at the College of the Desert Street Fair, in Palm Desert, California.
The other six months of the year, we travel and recharge our creative batteries.
We use brushes, and recently, a combination of airbrush and hand painting. Our common themes are scenic, floral, and patchwork.
We feel blessed to be making our living out of art on fabric.
-Hari Rollins and Gary Erickson
