INSPIRATION

Although I hesitate to bring up the troublesome and challenging months of 2020, I do have to pay tribute to the terrible times that forced me to positively channel my energies. Just when the pandemic invaded our lives, my Dad suddenly passed away- a whiplash kind of effect, and something that so many of us similarly have experienced. I threw myself into a productive frenzy. As a passionate fiber artist/yarn dyer, I found that during lockdown I had to look close to home for my resources. I scoured my kitchen, my pantry, pulling out anything that would remotely work as a natural dye: beets, spinach, frozen blueberries and strawberries, red grapes, onion skins, turmeric, tea, and I even scrounged a little maraschino cherry juice! Next, I dove into my fabric stash for available natural cloth. Ready to dip!

Voila- I went crazy, no limitation, no formulas, like a wild child. I found so much peace in this therapeutic activity, such satisfaction- it truly saved my sanity and gave me solace from grief. And the best thing about it, I did it all in my Dad’s kitchen. We lived next door to each other and we loved cooking meals together daily. It was special to be able to walk into his home and feel recovery through creativity.

I graduated from fabric scraps to dyeing beautiful silk velvet cut devore scarves- from Farm to Fashion!!
