A quick glimpse around the studio the past few weeks: I love this book of puppets that artist Paul Klee made for his son as toys and am using it as my inspiration for color for my next batch of dyed fabrics, rinsing some silk and admiring the colors, an image of my dye color notes and recipes from a recent dye session,tape is what i use as a simple resist in many of my fabrics and there is something so beautiful about the leftover tape wadded up into balls after its removed from the fabric that it often is reused as material for one of my sculptures, and some hand painted fabric hanging to dry in my studio.

its been another busy few weeks in the studio, for a visual recap, a few snapshots: new scarves in the works, loosely inspired by the shapes and forms of southwestern rugs remixed in contemporary colors combinations, my dye process in action on the our studio version of a kitchen table, my perspective as i hand paint each carefully mixed color into my design, who could resist that face???, a creative use for some fabric scraps, these fabric coasters are now available online.
