|My wearable art has been available online for more than five years;
I have been experimenting with dyes and fabrics for more than three
Strong, vivid color combinations are my specialty. Experimenting is a
consistent joy; I draw my inspiration from natural forms and the interplay
between negative and positive space.
I use only the best quality silks. My favorite is 16.5mm stone-washed crepe
de Chine due to its luxurious texture, with chiffon as a close second.
The fine "hand" of the silk is unaffected by wax or resists because I apply dye directly to
the scarves, diluted or thickened with seaweed-based thickener. Fiber-reactive dyes
bind chemically with the fibers and are completely permanent. Each scarf and necktie is
a signed original painting that you will never see anywhere else. My floral designs are
done from life, not from photographs, and I never use digital tricks.
