LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 4.19 37 in Taylorsville, Kentucky. In Taylorsville she eventually opened her own gift shop, Colors of Kentucky, and, later, Colors of the Rainbow, where she sold her designs. "She was very involved with all of her customers. In the gift shops, there were repeat customers and it was important to her to maintain those relationships," says Blake, who works in Atlanta as a cin- ematographer. Studwell's work included a variety of painted items, from sweatshirts to brooches to, of course, jean jackets. "She loved to paint animals and create holiday-themed clothing," Blake says. His mom's Derby clothing was sold in gift shops all over Kentucky, and she even had original artwork featured in Cracker Barrels nationwide. Today, her clothing designs can be found on online markets like Etsy or, if you're lucky, you might stumble upon a Joan Studwell original in a thrift store. Wesley Bacon, a senior editor at Kertis, says her team did just that last year, while working on projects for Woodford Reserve for the upcoming Derby season. "Our producer went to Fat Rabbit" — the thrift store in Germantown — "and saw (the jacket) in all its glory. We all chipped in five bucks and brought it home," Ba- con says. The team takes turns wearing it when they work on Derby-related proj- ects in the office. Blake says it makes him proud to see his mother's work live on. "People want to connect with originality," he says, "and her stuff was so unique. It has stood the test of time."
