About this Exhibitor / Bio: 

There is a special magic to be found in handweaving one's own highly-textured cloth.  I am always pushing the limits of what can be done with my handwoven fabrics.  Using multiple surface-design techniques sets my work apart from other hand-weavers.  They accentuate the beauty of the weave structures: discharging to expose hidden colors and textures; over-dyeing to impart an added depth and dimension, painting to add an extra layer of interest. Every garment is made one at a time, by my husband and myself in our studio, using no outside help.   My newest foray into surface design has given me a heightened sense of creativity which I share with the women who wear my garments.
