The colors, textures, and shapes found in nature have always
filled me with appreciation and delight. The discovery of
botanical printing was the perfect fit for me. It combines
my background in apparel design and love of textiles, with
my interest in gardening and hiking. I donít go anywhere
without my pruning shears these days!
combines the historical methods used in natural dyeing with
contact and medium print techniques. The results are
stunning plant portraits captured on fabric and paper. My
love of nature makes me conscious of keeping the process as
gentle on the environment as I can. I recycle clothing and
cloth, plastics and found objects either into the finished
items or in the processing. There are no mordants that are
ever disposed of, they are used until they are used up or in
the case of iron solution; put on the moss in my PNW lawn.
