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.
