Exhibiting Member Since 2016

First and foremost I am a weaver. Using silk, bamboo & cotton, most of my work is functional fabric for clothing and accessories. Occasionally I stray into the world of art, weaving impressionistic landscapes or "reweaving" text to explore worldly or spiritual concepts. Most of my work is hand-dyed in a process related to the ancient art of “ikat.” White yarns are sequenced and stretched on a table where designs are dye-painted onto the unwoven yarns. The patterned yarns are blended with solid colors to create a variety of color effects, then handwoven on a floor loom. Final finishing may include sewing, hand-knotting, stitchery and/or framing. I personally execute all details of the weaving myself.
