Joy Did It

That's what my sisters always said - "Joy did it!" My dad suggested I use it for my freelance design business. No longer a designer, the name has stuck.

I am a fiber geek. A textile nerd. I spin, weave, dye, reproduce ancient and historical textiles and document for fun. I absorb information about fibers and love to experiment.

I started dyeing silk scarves as a result of a weaver's guild workshop and became interested in the Japanese art of shibori. I love the randomness of colors and the resulting patterns from the folds. I am trying to learn how to do different types of shibori and really enjoy arashi shibori, the shibori named after thunder for resembling the driving rains.

I have been dyeing scarves since 2010. However, I have been spinning and weaving since 1988 and crocheting since 1979. I hope that I can transition from code monkey (my day job) to follow my textile passion full-time some day.

    I am a fiber artist in Central Ohio. I love textiles in any form - modern, ancient, fiber, yarn, woven, felted, natural, dyed. I will talk about textiles until you walk away. I am also a trained graphic designer (did you know they can be trained?).

Welcome and thank you for visiting! The work you see is influenced by the Japanese art of dyeing known as Shibori as well as my own passion for color.
