"I discovered the concept of natural dyeing and eco printing just last year. Despite being a little late to the game, it has absolutely captivated me. It generates a constant mindfulness of my surroundings and an appreciation for nature (and science) on a deeper and slower level. I enjoy incorporating local PNW foliage in honor of our beautiful town. Each piece is wearable art; it tells an individual story of a plant’s journey through life. By the process of botanical printing and dyeing, it then lives forever on beautifully soft textiles. Its story becomes permanent. Revived."
