                  Fiber - wearable



    A stick, a stone, a leaf, a song...  The natural world is my inspiration for  creating richly patterned and textured fabrics which I fabricate into unique clothing and accessories for adornment.


    I work with the traditional Japanese technique of arashi shibori combined with resist dyeing, hand painting, block printing and various other surface design processes to color, pattern and embellish fabrics.  I work on natural fibers such as silk, wool, linen and some micro fibers.
