About This Artist
I am a textiles artist with a focus on Shibori. Working with silk, boiled wool, and cotton gauze, I create artful pieces of clothing and accessories such as silk and cotton kimonos, tops, wool hats, gloves, scarves, and various jackets and vests. My artist career began after graduating in 2014 with a BFA in Fashion Design. I started to sell my work in boutiques, craft shows, and trade shows. It's important to bring craft into our daily lives to show ourselves and each other what's possible.
Q&A With This Artist
A: I use all natural fibers such as silk, wool, and Mongolian Lamb fur. My materials are sourced from ethical factories overseas whom I've confirmed are sustainable suppliers. The first process my textiles go through is Shibori and dyeing, then the fabrics are air-dried before cutting and sewing into a final garment.
A: I come from a long line of craftspeople and entrepreneurs. Almost every time I create I think about my family and how this ability is in my blood. It makes me enjoy what I'm doing that much more. I'm also part Japanese, and naturally gravitated towards the Japanese textile technique, Shibori. It's the focus of everything I create and I consider that paying homage to the motherland, which is extremely satisfying.
A: Since I'm currently not working on wholesale orders, I've just been waking up each day and creating whatever I feel the urge to make. It's been the best exercise in creativity and I'm loving seeing all facets of my craft come together.
