textile dyeing

As a Japanese-American, my recent work has become more deeply connected to my heritage especially my parents' family businesses in Japanese antiques & kimono design. I’ve been working with Japanese traditional dyeing techniques such as indigo, rozome wax-resist, katazome stencil dyeing for over 20 years. 

"After several years living in Japan, I feel a special connection to my ancestors and their deep appreciation for nature in each season and cycle. Besides my love of natural indigo color, my textiles in shades of blue reflect my fascination with realms of nature such as the sky and sea, and movements in clouds, waves and wind."
