My present works are Natural dyes and Japanese shibori resist technique on fabric. On occasion, I integrate some Eco printing.
Now, I am immersing myself in this (ad)venture of surface design, on fabric. The daily results coming out of the dye pot are pure magic!All items are hand dyed by myself, in my small studio, in central Ontario, Canada. These textile pieces include silk scarves, cotton daypacks and cotton tunics.
A large variety of natural dyes, including Madder, Logwood, Cochineal, Alkanet and others are part of my exploration. Some of the Shibori techniques I have used include: Arashi, Kumo nui, Mokume and Itajime.Summer is here and I am able to collect local plants to make dye baths. These are: Sumac, Walnut, Yarrow, Goldenrod, Queen Anne's Lace and many more.
During my upcoming travels, I will continue to make collages, using some of my previously airbrushed Lotus images, together with pencil and coloured pencil techniques.
Harmonious and soft natural dye colours on cotton and silk enhance my naturally dyed fabrics Dismiss
