Wearable Fiber Art

My line of clothing and accessories starts with natural fiber fabrics, such as silk, cotton, or rayon and wool roving that I hand dye in my home studio. Most of my felted garments are made using the Nuno felting process. Very thin layers of wool roving are laid out as a base. Then layers of silk fabrics and other fibers are used to build up the design. Soap and water and gentle friction shrink the wool and result in a fabric that is soft and drapeable, with the warmth of wool and the luscious look of silk. 


Simple garment lines provide me with a "canvas" upon which to create a vibrant collage of fiber and fabric. Each garment is a one of a kind work of art. All of my designs are easy to wear and hand washable.


In 2015, I was accepted as a Roycroft Artisan. http://ralaweb.com/

The colors and textures of fabric and yarns have fascinated me since I was a small child watching my mother sew.  I have been sewing and working with fiber in one form or another for most of my life.
