If you ever got a breath-taking thrill upon opening the BIG box of 64 Crayola crayons, in awe of the possibilities, then you know the way I feel when I look at the world around me and consider my next dye project and how that will transform into a piece of fabric and then become a wearable item. The way that yarn holds onto color, with all the light and shadow and texture, is exciting for me. I feel there is an endless path to combining these colorful threads and weaving them into beautiful, functional cloth that can be worn and enjoyed every day. Each piece begins with the inspiration of a landscape, a flower, an animal, or some other aspect of nature captured in a photo. I then dye yarns to match the colors I see and take those yarns to the loom where they are woven together into the fabric that becomes your shawl, scarf, or bag.
