Tee Shirt Design: As Above Sew Below

I don’t know if many of you know this but I began my professional career in the graphic arts. Ruby lift and waxers were on the way out and Adobe and Quark were my first forays into creating art and solving design problems on screen. I still love it and decided to marry my two loves visual arts and sewing to create a graphic art work that could be printed on tee shirts and similar items because I am trying to also craft a business.


I started this because I want to buy more sewing machines and the proper business accoutrements to get back to teach sewing classes. Drafting patterns takes some time and while I have a few accessory patterns drafted I haven’t digitized them yet. Like digital patterns and online content these things take time and effort, this design was dropped into my subconcious by my sewing muse and I offer it up to everyone. Putting this out into the world is one tiny step towards that goal of making sewing related arts my profession as well as my meditation.

My art work “As Above Sew Below”


“‘Tis true without lying, certain and most true. That which is below is like that which is above and that which is above is like that which is below.” – Isaac Newton

“Whatever is below is similar to that which is above.” translation from the Emerald Tablet

“The builders of Angkor Wat, a Hindu temple in Cambodia, strove to outline the form of the universe on earth. The outer moat of Angkor Wat symbolizes the primordial oceans, the inner court is the earth, and the temple precinct represents the heavens. The idea behind presenting the unity of cosmoses visually was to enable pilgrims who visited the temple to experience its truth internally. “As above so below and as within so without”; he or she who explored the temple grounds could meaningfully contemplate this philosophical truth from within its physical manifestation.” Ark in Time
