I am in awe of the possibilities of color and pattern inherent in shibori, an ancient Japanese fiber process. Areas of pure color are seamlessly blended in an endless variety of tints and shades, revealing where color meets resist, creating a rich visual texture that transcends the notion of pattern. Through my experimentation with dyes, I found felting, and I am fascinated by the sculptural properties of wool. Nuno felting enables me to combine my own fabrics with wool to add depth and dimension to my wearable pieces. I feel that my pieces’ wearability enhances, rather than detracts from, their depth. That the work will be worn is significant, indeed essential, to its artistic value. It is when the work is worn—when the wearer imbues it with their own sense of style and integrates it into their daily life—that the work truly comes to life.
