I found a kindred spirit with Jennifer. As we compared notes we quickly discovered that we shared a love of the wild open spaces that Oregon has to offer and regularly draw inspiration from the natural world around us. The pattern I settled on was inspired by Steen’s Mountain in SE Oregon, which Jennifer describes as her “absolute favorite place in the world.” She even cooked up a colorway just for this project that beautifully captures the soft, delicate tones of SE Oregon.
