Artist Statement

I have long been attracted to the textures and colors achieved with various surface design techniques (batik, marbling, shibori, etc.). I am now combining two or more of those within the same work, building unique patterns and effects. Often I block print (blocks made by me from my own drawings) with vat dyes and discharge chemicals on top of a shibori patterned ground, or marble over. I love to mix it all up and discover what can happen. My scarves, and other wearable art are all original and one of a kind.
