Artist Statement

I am a natural dyer, maker of hats, shawls, scarves and weaver.

Come see the glorious colors that can be created from natural dyeing.  My focus is pure colors on silk and cotton from plants, tree bark and insects.  

The silk is mordanted to allow the fiber to retain the color.  Then one at a time each scarf is dyed. The scarves make beautiful gifts or are wonderfully self indulgent.  It will be hard to choose between all the colors!

My handmade hats, shawls, scarves are made by me from the finest yarns available from the US, Europe and South Africa.  I also use handspun yarns in my weavings and with some wearables.

Come to our barn studio that captures the soft northern and eastern light.
