Artist Statement

"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 seas, and movements in clouds, waves, and wind."  Kiyomi earned her BA/BFA at Tufts University/Museum School and her MFA at Kyoto City University of Art.
