My background is in graphic design and since 2013, I’ve been hand dyeing indigo textiles and accessories to wear and to decorate at home. Working out of my studio in downtown Jackson, Tennessee, I dye with natural indigo yielding sublime shades. Originally from Wisconsin and having grown up with Summers spent on Lake Michigan and Lake Superior shores the waves and areas where waves meet sky are particularly inspiring to me and play out in the fluidity of my shibori work. My design background and love of geometric patterns and clean lines is more visible in the katazome pieces.
