I have been dyeing silk since 1998, I first started dyeing veils for bellydancers and later branched into painting scarves and other garments. The year round sunny weather on the south side of Oahu made for excellent outdoor conditions to dry silks in a soft ocean breeze. I am greatly influenced by the tropical colors of the island but also draw upon a southwest color palette inspired by my previous home, Sedona Arizona. In May of 2005, I moved to Hawaii with two suitcases and a bit of pocket change.

I love falling into the silk art zone and creating. I'm also fortunate enough to live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth, and enjoy jungle hiking, searching for waterfalls, and surfing.

If you plan to visit Hawaii, send me an email. I have met many customers in person on their travels to the island.
