I spend a lot of time running around the woods collecting things to dye with. I dye a line of yarn that can be found at www.etsy.com/shop/thesesecrets
I am a fibre artist living in East Vancouver. I believe that clothing security is just as important as food security- and that we can find brilliance in even the hardest things.
I make most of my own clothing (partially because of my beliefs in clothing security, and partially because i’m 6 feet tall- and finding clothes that fit is hard). I also weave, spin, felt, do surface design (screen print, eco printing), knit, crochet, dye, wildcraft, dance poorly, sing even more poorly, and ride bikes.
I have a BFA from UBC-Okanagan, and I went to textile school at KSA in Nelson BC.
I have a cat named Blinkus, and i’m pretty sure that she may be the best thing in the world.
I spend a lot of time with my darling partner, who helps me with all of the strange things I do- (He is a lovely artist in his own right… www.aplustattoos.com)
