Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
My work is made by hand dyeing and hand printing yards of silk fabric in my home studio. I work closely with a small family-owned neckwear company in North Carolina. I have sewing skills, but not strong enough for selling high quality items. With the help of Carolina Textile District, they put me in touch with Brown and Church Ltd, who specialize in and make neckwear.
