Artist Statement

I am captivated by the idea of turning art into garments.  It is my desire to combine art and practicality so that anyone can have in their closet a garment with color, flash and energy.

The garments often reflect an Asian influence.  When I dye my silk, I use a Japanese method called Shibori which creates patterns by binding, stiching, folding or twisting the fabric before placing it in the dye.  I also paint on silk using French dyes that are then steam set.  

I can never repeat the exact same design.  Each piece is truly one-of-a-kind.
