I have been a fiber artist for many years. I created handwoven clothing for several of those years, dyeing my own yarns and silks for linings. I hand dye ribbon, lace, vintage fabrics, silks, scarves, clothing, you name it I've probably dyed it. I use fiber reactive dyes, acid dyes, natural dyes and in recent years I've become enamored with using leaves and flowers to create dye prints on fabric and paper.
I am always on the hunt for vintage laces, doilies, unloved garments to up cycle, and vintage fabrics and linens to incorporate in garments and fabric books.
See my gallery page for samples of my work and see the events page for places I'll be teaching and vending in the USA.
