I work with textiles, and make artwork for exhibition and sale. With my artwork I include clothing, designed for the individual, dyed, constructed, and occasionally woven. Textiles for interiors include draperies, cushions, rugs, and domestic fare for kitchens and bedrooms.
Dyeing with natural dye is a prominent feature of my work. The colors obtained from these dyes are beautiful and complex. This past year my focus with these dyes is “the neighborhood”, the place where I live. I only need to walk out the door at home to find dyestuffs. My dye notebooks are full of the colors of nature on samples of silk, linen, cotton, and wool cloth and yarn. These notebooks will continue to inspire me to create handsome cloth which respects the earth and pleases the eye.
