So this last weekend I up and moved my home and studio to a new location in Lake Forest Park (just north of Seattle). I hate moving - my back still aches and I am not done yet. Still unpacking boxes in the new place while I make plans to move the rest of my stuff in to storage for awhile. Even though I cant find anything I need in my new place yet.... I am actually excited to set up my new live/work space. It represents a fresh start and it is an opportunity for me to focus on how I can move forward in my art, my life and my business. I will be in this location for a short period of time while I wait for an artist loft space to finish being built out. I hope to move into that space in early summer.

I also just got the huge packet of documents back from the state for the formation of my new LLC! My new business name is: "Twisted Root Studio, LLC." I am excited about setting up my new business -- It will be a design studio where I create fashion and gifts for clients and for sale online. In addition, I will offer design services such as fabric design, presentation boards, and garment technical spec packs for wholesale companies. The products I create & offer will be under the name "House of Dyrdahl," "Twisted Root Studio" & possible other labels. I am really looking forward to developing some new products to sell.

More to come...

  3. Hey Andrew! Your work is awesome. Mom (Kathy Wilson) was telling me about you the other day and I finally made it onto your website. I know you design for men, but do you design for women as well? I'm getting married in a little over a year and want to do a very unique and eclectic dress...interested?
