ask a designer: judy ross
today is the first installment of a new column at d*s: ask a designer. i've invited a slew of talented artists and designers to share their experience and advice with those of us looking to start a design-based business or just find some inspiration for our own work. today we're kicking things off with textile designer judy ross. i've been a fan of judy's for some time now and really admire her commitment to quality and the art of embroidery. judy has been producing her eponymous line of pillows, rugs and drapery since 1995 and has since become a permanent fixture in an industry known for its fleeting interest. whether she's designing a new line of chainstitched pillows or creating custom drapery for homes across the country, judy is constantly adding beautiful and thoughtful pieces to the market. not to mention raising her young son at the same time- which is a feat on its own. so, if you'd like to ask judy a question (work related, please no personal questions) about her process, how she got started, how she garnered press attention or even how she found a space to create her work please leave your comments below (these are merely suggestions, not the only questions you can ask). i'll be collecting comments today and tomorrow and then judy will answer as many as possible by this friday in a special section. so, ask away!
