Millennia ago the exacting and complicated chemistry of indigo dyeing was discovered independently in many places around the world.  We do not know how.  Its capriciousness has led to rites, rituals, superstitions, fiercely defended secrets, and even allegations of black magic.  Its beauty, depth, and complexity have led to this work. In this technique that I developed, papers are folded, dipped into vats of plant derived indigo dye, and moved in different ways to make the images. I seek to create grace, serenity, and refuge, searching for a mere mark that resonates deep within us.  I hope these portrayals of ideal landscapes suggest the ecologically sound world that we remember, dream about, and long for.

Fiber Art Now published an article I wrote about my ongoing efforts and work. It discusses "The EVOLUTION of my INDIGO WORK."

Elle Decoration featured my indigo work in an article titled "EXPLORING THE HISTORY OF A COLOUR: BLUE."
