A new addition to my website is my portolfio of paintings - ART. The images span from 2007 to present, including a series that is currently in process and one I wish to show in completion within the next year. I was a painter long before I was a dyer, and in recent months I have found solace and happiness in returning to that place of artistic exploration and method. When I started my line of textiles, I for some reason felt it necessary to keep the two worlds separate and now I realize that my art is my art alone, no matter what the media may be. The focus was on growing a business and it is all consuming endeavor no matter what kind of business that is! It's very important as an artist to revisit where you began and to witness your own personal growth throughout the years. I now wish to open those fans of mine to my other style of creation and process and hope you enjoy the new ART tab as I intend for you to do so.
