I dye various types of fine quality silk fabrics which have different weights and sheens, which makes the final piece so much more interesting as the light hits it. I use shibori techniques or a bamboo-resist method that I developed. Each piece has been repeatedly dyed, overdyed, bleached and re-dyed, resulting in layers of color and pattern. This results in vivid rich colors, patterns and luminosity. The strips of silk are sewn together, stretched over a deep frame, the fabric wraps around to the back of the piece, creating a very clean, professional presentation. I also work with an ancient Japanese method called paste resist, which is how kimonos have been dyed for hundreds of years. My version includes a unique twist on this method where colors and patterns are layered and layered, the results are remarkable. Consider a unique piece of fiber art which will add warmth and good energy to your environment.
