About this Exhibitor / Bio: 

Many years ago while traveling on a bus in Afghanistan, decorated with tapestries, tassels and bangles all of which were swaying back and forth, we proceeded to climb the narrow dusty road through the Khyber Pass, I was inspired to begin my explorations of the world of textiles and color.My subsequent travels and studies have enhanced my vision and love of fiber, specifically how the flow of cloth tells the story of its origins and surrounds the body with beauty and meaning.My detailed drawings of the wrappings woven around Egyptian mummified cats have also led me to this place.I use hand painting with Shibori dyeing, Rozome and hand felting techniques on textured silks and wools to create contemporary fashions.Shibori techniques, Itajime, Arashi and To-Kumo create textured fields of graphic colors that can only be achieved by hand.Of importance are dynamic designs, emotionally charged colors, comfort and silhouettes that flatter a woman's body. My fiber explorations are ever evolving.
