Definitely NOT your grandma's tie dye!

When I retired from a corporate technical career, I wanted to expand the creative side of my psyche, which had been put on hold for so long. I started to paint in water colors and acrylics, and to experiment with pastels and multi-media. But I discovered a new world of artistic opportunity when I started experimenting with fabric and fabric dyes.

Creating wearable items is both a lot of fun and very satisfying artistically, especially when someone else wears and enjoys my designs. I work with natural fabrics, primarily silk and light rayon (sometimes cotton or bamboo), and I use both fiber reactive and steamed silk dyes in my processes. Most of my pieces are made using both types of dyes and involve multiple processes before I consider them complete.

I hope you enjoy looking at my work, and perhaps purchasing a piece or two! And I hope you agree that what you see is definitely NOT your grandma's tie dye.

    I enjoy making unique items that are at once artistic and functional. While some of my hand-dyed accessories are similar, each piece was hand-crafted, so no two will be identical.
