About my work…



My entry into textiles and fiber arts began when I first became interested in learning to spin sheep/alpaca fleece into yarn. From there, my world expanded as I began to appreciate art in a whole new way. I continued to explore other arts such as weaving and felting which eventually led me to world of dyeing using different techniques and methods. Currently, I am learning, experimenting, and working with natural dyes including indigo, some synthetic dyes, and the use of plants, and flowers with different fabrics with an emphasis on silks. I experience great joy as I open each piece in order to discover the results. It is much like opening a gift every time!
