Salty Hippo Studio is an art studio with a small retail space. I’m the resident artist (quite literally, I live on the building’s top floor)—and I design and hand print patterns onto textiles.
Most recently from NYC, I moved to Chillicothe two years ago to be closer to family. Determined not to have to mow a lawn, I found this building on the town square and renovated it into a live/work/studio space.
Most days you’ll find me printing fabric, but every once and a while I can’t stop myself from piecing the patterns and colors together and trying my hand at quilting. It’s a new hobby for me and I’m finding I really enjoy it.
In addition to printing new designs onto Robert Kauffman cotton and upholstery yardage this year, I’m currently working on a couple of designs that are special-just-for-the-shop-hop—I can’t wait for September to get here and meet all of you.
