Q&A

What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?

"I came across my art by accident! A little over 5 years ago I had an idea to replicate my paintings on to fiber. First I tried painting directly on to the fiber. The result was awful, so I tried a tie dye inspired approach instead. Then one day I made what I thought was the most beautiful dyed wall hanging... then I dropped it in to my dye run-off tray! But when I picked it up it had the most beautiful lines and details. Ever since then I've been trying to recreate that beautiful mistake!"
