I work with itajime shibori, or clamp-resisted dyeing, a traditional Japanese dyeing process. It involves layering patterns by adding and subtracting color repeatedly, leaving marks and traces of
what was there before. This method of dyeing allows me to juxtapose soft and hard edges, and play with the subtleties of color. In the dyeing process, shapes and shadows are left on the fabric
creating an overall interaction of symmetry and asymmetry. Overall, I aim for subtle narrative spaces in my quilts and installations.
