I am continuing with Surtex posts this week as we look at who will be showing what in New York at surface designs' top showcase this month. First up we have Carolyn Gavin who will be showing her latest and most fabulous design work with Lilla Rogers in booth 220. Carolyn creates the best painterly florals and is a wiz with colour so if you are visiting the show you will not want to miss her portfolio.
