As an artist I am drawn to themes of repetition and evidence of change. I am fascinated by subtle marks that suggest something else that is there or has been there. The Japanese form of bound resist dying called "shibori" speaks to both of these ideas. All of my scarves, shawls, and apparel are individually made using one or more types of shibori. "Arashi shibori" is a pole wrapping technique which creates pleats and varying patterns on silk. "Itajime shibori" is a folding and clamping technique which creates dyed shapes on fabric.
