I work with plants and plant dyes on natural fibers to make beautiful, useful things. I’m fascinated with the colors achieved from many humble weeds that we see every day. The plants have rather magical properties, I use special techniques to make them to give up their secrets to imprint my fabric. I’ve always been a bit obsessed with the passage of time. That makes this Art form perfect…for me. The time of year and the stage of growth of a plant, can affect the color that it offers to the process of my Fabric Art. The magic itself cannot be rushed—-open the Fabric-Plant bundle too soon and it will be ruined forever! This work teaches me mindfulness, presence and patience.

Purchase Care

I’ve found that the best way to clean my fabric art is to hand wash with cold water, using shampoo…then a complete cold water rinse and air dry.
