Buying.

Items indicated "Sold" can be ordered. Can even be ordered in different colors. Because of the "handmade" nature of this kind of work, no two items will be "exactly identical". They will be like loaves of homemade bread made from the same dough.

About Me

My photo
From the beginning I loved textiles. As a child my mother dressed me in beautiful garments and as a young person Kismet was my favorite movie. The heroine danced in the bazaar flinging beautiful fabric.

How to Purchase

Because dye is difficult to control all orders are unique. If not already sold you may purchase the original. If already sold you can still purchase the "same" piece. Your order will be a new piece approximating the original as closely as possible (or with any differences you may request . . . perhaps you would prefer different colors). Clothing is available in S/M/L. Custom sizes are available. Money orders are preferred. Checks are acceptable and items will be shipped once they have cleared. Shipping and handling will be charged to the customer.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

This is a section of silk for a broomstick skirt I'm making for the 2014 SPIN Silk Painting Conference Fashion Show in Santa FE. This bi-annual conference is a bee-hive of silk painting and a wonderful experience both as student and instructor. I will be teaching with Barbara Matthews this year, a class in surface design techniques for coloring silk that will include silk painting with and without gutta, shibori, breakdown printing, and a variety of additional techniques for treating backgrounds employing soy wax, cold wax, salt and a variety of sprays. In this class we will all be working on the same focal design pattern and will leave the further dyework design to each student. Demos of the above-mentioned different techniques will be held on the first morning. This is a two day class so we are really hoping to accomplish a lot. Typically, silk painters are very hard workers, so I'm fairly certain they will get a lot done and be able to finish what isn't completed at home. Wish us luck!!! I am excited to be teaching again at SPIN (taught shibori last time with Linda Walters). But this is a very ambitious agenda so I am biting my psychological nails!!!!!
