After spending over four years away from dyeing fabric, I have recently begun a new project involving hand-dyed garments and fabric. Drawing from my studies of shibori combined with low-water immersion dye techniques, I am producing clothing that explores ways to create mesmerizing marks on fabric which reflect my passion for pattern and accumulation in my art.
I gravitate towards fabric as a medium because of its intimate relationship with humanity and the body. It is one of the most vital materials to every human culture, bridging necessity and expression. Its associations with shelter, comfort, care, and love are intertwined with my own intentions in my work.
As I share this work with you, I hope you enjoy your own connections to the marks and patterns I have made.
