Works shown here are dyed on freely hanging panels of fabric, semi-transparent silks and often layered to create interest. This is a unique approach to the traditional techniques of katazome and yuzen, normally reserved for dyeing kimono or to painting-like panel works. I like to let the works move and feel a little alive; you won't see a frame around here.
