About The Artist

We are what we wear I create one-size-fits-all fashions from organic cotton, hemp, and silk--naturally dyed then cut and machine sewn using zero-waste principles. People who experience my one-of-a-kind pieces of sustainable wearable art feel themselves draped in natural beauty. The textiles are soft, the natural dye colors are rich and earthy; the garment is a comforting capacious shape, that flatters every body.
Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
My sustainable art-to-wear kimonos, ponchos, and shawls are all my creations, beginning with selecting the undyed yardage, then moving to the cutting table, and finally dyeing the finished pieces. I use organic cottons, hemp, and silk fabrics and zero-waste sewing patterns to minimize my environmental impact. I grow many of the dyes I use or forage for leaves in my neighborhood and compost all my waste.
