Upcoming Sale

I’m pleased to be exhibiting at the Artisan Sale at One Colorado in Pasadena, CA on May 4, 2019 from 10 am to 3 pm with Textile Arts Los Angeles.

Stop by to see hand-dyed and hand-stitched home accessories and some exclusive new gifts in time for Mother’s Day.

 

Hello! I'm happy to share my work with you. I'm a student of textile techniques from around the world. I use plant and mineral based dyes and pigments to color textiles blending traditional and contemporary techniques. I cut and stitch (by machine and by hand) the fabrics I create to make functional and decorative homewares that add color and style to your environment. I welcome custom projects and collaborations. Drop me a line of you're inspired by what you see and want to learn more.  

Would you like to purchase fabrics, pillows and such that feature my designs? Have a look here.

Linen Indigo Pillow

100% linen fabric was stitched before dipping in my vat of USA grown and processed indigo. A fragment of cotton voile was hand-stitched onto the front of the cushion using thread that bound the fabric.
