Susan Shinnick's Profile
I have been making clothing and textiles for 20 years. I live and work in Iowa City, Iowa.
I hand dye and hand print my textiles and create my own silk screens using images of prairie plants, birds and other patterns. It is important to know that almost everything I do is unique. It is very hard for me to replicate things exactly. This is a blessing and a curse. I print with small screens that I hand place on the fabric. This keeps things loose and more painterly and "alive".
My clothes,pillows,linens and bags are made from yardage I have printed, so the pattern falls differently on each and each is unique.
