Two Juried Fine Craft Shows July 12–14 & August 9–11, 2019
There is a special magic to be found in handweaving one's own highly textured cloth. I am always pushing the limits of what can be done with my handwoven fabrics. Using multiple surface-design techniques sets my work apart from other handweavers. These techniques accentuate the beauty of the weave structures: discharging to expose hidden colors and textures; over-dyeing to impart an added depth and dimension; painting and immersion dyeing to add an extra layer of interest. Every garment is made one at a time, in my studio, by me. This foray into surface design has given me a heightened sense of creativity, which I share with the women who wear my garments.
