Dyed textiles and paper
Not yet registered for  2024 Open Studios Event
I work in a variety of textile techniques, including shibori, screen and block printing, painting, resist dyeing, snow dyeing, and ecoprinting, sometimes combining several techniques in one piece. I use fiber reactive and acid dyes as well as indigo and other natural dyes. My influences include textiles from many cultures, informed by working with diverse museum collections as a curator and educator.
I also use dyes to make paste paper, which involves manipulating colored paste to form patterns. The paper is then used to make collages, including landscapes and abstract designs.
