Each piece is a story in my process of experimentation and developing a close relationship to nature. My creative methods for dyeing result in unique creations and colors that maintain an earthy aesthetic. I do not submit to the traditional method of natural dyeing that is dependent on metallic mordant salt baths and soaks. As much as possible, I seek refuge in the alternative and unexplored.
