To create a beautiful composition, I use the shibori technique for dyeing fabric.  The fabric is manipulated by wrapping it around a pole and securing it with string before color is added.  Curvilinear lines are produced.  Shibori is always a gift and a surprise. Check out my process page for videos of technique.

When I design I think of your body as the canvas that becomes the composition.

To collaborate, is always an adventure where visions are fulfilled with surprises.

I start with composition, a mixing of colors, lines and shapes.  What’s beautiful on the wall, draped over a chair, is beautiful on the body.

Always seeking depth and movement, interest and contrast. I am not seeking flat.  

Flat is what I begin with, white flat fabric. The composition is the point of focus at any given moment.  Every composition seeks harmony and unity.  What creates unity is the way the elements are arranged.  For the most unified composition I seek variety, balance, movement, and harmony when arranging the colors and silks.  In dyeing fabric these factors are considered as I create formulas.  The body is the canvas that becomes the composition.

Your body, as canvas, seeks balance and movement.

Your body has rhythm.

These are all the things I think about. 

First there was an idea.  Then a swirling energy of thoughts and ideas that constantly change and then begin to take shape in manifestation.  And as you wear your truly wearable art, as it ages, it, too, will change.
