Luli (Lordes) Sanchez worked as a designer creating prints for the fashion industry in Manhattan for 18 years, before deciding to I rent a teeny tiny workspace in NYC’s East Village, where she basically painted non-stop and began selling her artwork to designers of both fashion and home furnishing. These days, she divides her time between Brooklyn N.Y. and Merida, Yucatan.
My work is still hand painted, in inks or watercolor. I do not actually paint on fabric, or produce fabric and do not have plans become a brand, (or a lifestyle brand for that matter – I think people are perfectly capable of coming up with their own lifestyles without me butting in) and I practically leave the room if someone says “color separation” or “repeat” or “disc”, and need to write positive affirmations in my journal while eating crunchy snacks for some time afterwards to recover.
My objective with my designing, has been to capture an organic and moody yet optimistic spirit and have designs out in the world that in their own small way may invoke a feeling that underneath it all, it is a benevolent universe.
