I am inspired by nature, traditional crafts, and slow fashion. I began my journey with natural dyes in 2014. Through a desire for a new wardrobe free of visible stains, I dyed my own clothing at first. I expanded to anything I could get my hands on, exploring different types of fabrics and plants. Beginning the following year, I enriched myself in the textile community of the San Francisco Bay Area, learning from and being inspired by some truly amazing artists. I continued my art education by attending craft and folk schools around the country, focusing on indigo and natural dyes.

My current art practice focuses on using local and seasonal dye plants. With my practice has come a deeper understanding of sustainability. Each day I tune into plants a little bit more, especially aware of how the dye process is a continuation of the life cycle of the plant itself.

When I'm not dyeing, I’m teaching at a preschool, playing with flowers, crafting at home and taking care of my many house plants. I can't wait to share more with you!
