About

I am a Father, a Photographer, an Artist, a Gardener and an avid Nature lover. I live in the beautiful State of Oregon. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest since 1989, when I moved here from California to go to college at the University of Oregon. It was in the early 1990's that a friend invited me over to his house one Summer's evening to make some 'Tie Dye' shirts. It was love at first dye. I was fascinated with the colors and how I could create anything I wanted to. Even though my early work was terrible, I thought it was awesome. I got better at it. Soon I discovered Dharma Trading Company, which is the best supplier of everything you need for fiber art crafts(highly recommended) and I ordered Procion dye and high quality fabric.

My results began to take off and I have never stopped. I have never rested on my laurels. I am always striving to improve and to create even more inspiring artwork. The tapestry you purchase from me is the results of decades of experience being translated into an artwork that can brighten your world.
I get my inspiration from the beauty of Nature. I am an avid backpacker/hiker and have explored the Wilderness areas and endangered forests of Oregon and Washington since my teenage years. My other passion in life is Photography. I am a Nature/landscape photographer who seeks to protect the Forest, Mountains and streams through the capture of the beauty that I see. I am also an accomplished Portrait/Wedding photographer. My photography can been seen by searching Kirk DuBose Photography. Inspired by Nature and gorgeous colors of my beloved State of Oregon, I translate this inspiration into my Tie Dye work. My creative eye in both photography and tie dye go hand in hand. My mind thinks in colors and I have a strong need for expressing my visions.
I am raising a beautiful family in Portland, Oregon. I have a loving wife named Jen and a little 2 year old named Elijah and fast growing 13 year old named Lily. And our family would not be complete if I did not mention or family dog Stella. I live in a 1923 house built on a third acre. I have landscaped the property with Native trees and beautiful flowers that reflect my love of Nature. My artwork helps to support my family and each purchase from my shop puts food on our table and allows me to pursue my unique artwork.
