High-end women’s apparel, made of luxurious fabrics, designed by Rhonda Priestley, from her original paintings and designs.
Rhonda Priestley’s work is strongly influenced by her yearly travels to Italy where she is inspired by the culture and also the extraordinary quality of the light.
Her mixed-media pieces combine non-silver photo prints, solvent transfers, gel medium image layers and various paint techniques. In her new series, she captures the ancient textures and remarkable beauty of the neoclassical era in Italy with acrylic on solvent transfers and giclée prints.
She launched her new clothing line, Priestley Garments, in January 2013. Her textile designs are created from her original paintings and designs. All fabrics are printed on 100% crepe de chine and other luxe fabrics, using eco-friendly, water-based pigment inks, and are designed and fabricated into simple silhouettes.
