My focus is on the surface of the cloth. I build my pieces to be worn gently on the body. I mix my dyes. I over-dye and discharge the color using a shape-resist method. I employ metal to create an additional resist. I take the silk to where I want it to go. My work is collaged and pieced. My references come from where my eyes land. Traces of what has been done. Evidence revealing the memory of a gesture.
