Using hand-loomed knits as
my canvas, I move beyond the confines of the knitted stitch. Dyeing or
discharging freehand, in gradation or with shibori techniques, I often
develop my own methods for dyeing knits by adapting processes designed
for woven fabric. Color is what inspires and thrills me about the work. I
play with it in sheer layers, in subtle gradations or with bold and
fluid markings across the surface of the fabric.
sure that the garment is more than just a joy to behold, but also a
sensual pleasure to wear. I work only with natural fibers and simple
clean forms to create garments that have grace, femininity and feel
luxurious. It is very important to me that the garment, though a unique
statement, also become a staple of the wearer's wardrobe. I believe
wearable art should be true to its name and be truly wearable.
