In my dreams I am Vera Neumann. Her art, passion and creativity inspires me to no end.
Best known for her colorful vintage scarves signed Vera, she was wildly prolific and produced an incredible amount of timeless designs over the course of her life. I was SO excited for this new book to come out and couldn't wait to get my hands on a copy. It's bright and happy and tells her story beautifully. I adore her personality, business sense, and the way she lived, breathed and dreamt about art.
I've been collecting Vera scarves for quite awhile now, and can often recognize them before seeing her signature. Every time I find one while thrifting, I do a little happy dance.
Color is the language I speak best...Color sings to me.
(I like to think we're kindred spirits.)
