About

Passionately | exploring | dyeing | silk

Shibori Borealis is my creative persona and studio name, chosen to honour of the dancing lights of the northern skies, the Aurora Borealis. While exploring new twists on the ancient art of Japanese resist dyeing, I create one of a kind, hand-dyed artisan quality silk fabrics. My approach to dyeing has grown over many years to become a very special hybrid of various age old hand-dyeing techniques.

“Starting with beautiful quality silks, it’s my intention with every new piece to bring you something that like you –and me–, does not dance within the lines. Billowing and light as a feather, or rippling and luscious, nothing transforms a dancer as when she spreads her wings and embraces the glorious visual drama of dancing with silk. I hope that you will fall in love as I have with the natural beauty and magical movement of silk.”

Silk veils for dancers are the current focal point of my work; they offer me the unparalleled opportunity to create large scale symphonies of moving colour in concert with other dance artists.

Hand dyed wearable art, scarves and tapestries are occasionally also available.
