'Make It Your Own' with Avalon Preisendorfer
It’s been such an amazing experience to get to know all of these rad female artists who worked with us on the ‘Make It Your Own’ Frochickie pant project. The idea first sparked when we decided to doodle on a pair one day and realized how much fun it was. We gifted each artist with a pair of pants and a few sharpies but told them to go nuts with whatever artistic tools they had and the results were EPIC.
One artist in particular blew us away with her abstract painted pants. Avalon Preisendorfer, who hails from Long Beach, has a minimalist approach to her art but with a creative twist. She’s been known to incorporate unusual artistic tools into her creations, for example, coffee that spills onto paper that then turns into intricate masterpieces. Her use of watercolor is always done in a creative and funny way that shows her sense of humor. Give Avalon a follow-on Instagram at @avalonian and read our interview with her below.
My biggest influence would be my environment and personal experience. Whether it be the place I am living at the time, the people I interact with, the music I hear, or the stories I read, they all influence my perspective. If I am feeling uninspired or stagnant sometimes dipping in the ocean can peel away doldrums, or when I am feeling overwhelmed and disorganized getting some exercise helps me stay focused.
To be more specific, I draw inspiration from new and vintage art/design books, records, interior design, folklore, storytelling, poetry, symbolism, the ocean, patterns/colors found in nature, anatomy/physiology, current events, and the internet...
