Explorations in textile design

I have long been fascinated by textiles, and this work represents some samples of my forays into printing, weaving, and dyeing fabric.


While living in the Kutch region of India on a fellowship grant, I learned techniques from local artisans: organic resist mud dye, wax resist prints, and indigo dyeing, as well as a little sewing and embroidery.

The Fabric Workshop & Museum is an internationally acclaimed, Philadelphia-based textile screenprinting studio. As an apprentice and later, program coordinator, I designed repeat patterns and hand printed them onto 1x12 meter cotton fabric.
