I have a deep love for color and fine fabrics. I hand dye and hand silk screen on a variety of silks, velvets, and cottons. I employ a wide variety of hand dyeing techniques including shibori, batik, direct, reactive, vat dyes, and hand painting. I am particularly inspired by wrought iron designs, and autumn leaves. I love the way that water and oil look together, and I have tried to emulate this affect in some of my hand painted designs. I believe that color strongly influences the way we feel.
