Beautiful dress, exactly as I had expected from this artist. I bought another dress here, and this is of the same high quality. Very fast shipping.

Welcome. I started dying t-shirts with Procion dyes* in the 1980's as an alternative to the limited colors available for silk screening. By 1990 I had discovered batiking, a process of producing designs with wax acting as a resist, and I expanded into other clothing.

As an artist I am drawn to color, movement, and what happens when you are not paying attention. Color as I have found out in my own life can feed the soul. When a piece is worn, the design and color interacts with the body shape and the wearer revealing the art of the piece in its final form. I love this aspect of what I do and hope to receive pictures from those who wear my work.

Although I have designed on a number of themes, ancient art, nature and labyrinths are still my favorite topics. Custom designs allow me explore and challenge myself, so please convo me if you have a particular interest. There is no extra charge for custom designs.

*Since Procion is a cold water dye, it works well to preserve the wax, but allows for the characteristic crackle or spider web effect of batk. Once batiked and dyed I then boil out the wax by hand. Procion dyes are fiber reactive meaning that the color is created by chemical reaction and need no further mordant to be color fast. They are however sensitive to light and heat and will fade if exposed, so not good for curtains and they should be line dried, no hot dryers.

Variations in the color or even lack of color create a textured effect and are not considered defective.

Each batiked/hand dyed item is unique and original. The design may be similar but no two will be the same which applies to both wax stamping as well as the tjanting work. All hand dyed items are unique and can not be reproduced.
