DIPPING AND DYEING

Textile printing & dyeing has always been something I've been extremely passionate about. The still remember the first screen printing class I took in high school. I use to make abstract patterns out of randomly cropped hand drawn letters of the names of guys that I had a crush on hahahaha.  I would even when I moved to Montreal for Cegep I would tie dye / shibori some of my clothes to change up the look. I would wear them every when so much that some of my friends parents use to commission custom pieces from me.

When i went onto university I took every single fibre arts class that I possibly could and I would often incorporate my textiles art in with my furniture design every chance I could. Now in retrospect I should have just done a minor in Fibre arts but thats water under the bridge.

Life has a way of bringing you what you love and plan on filling my life with as much love as I possibly can. There is enough negativity out there so why add more to your life when you don't need to. 

One of the many reasons why I love summer is that I can turn my tiny from yard into an outdoor studio space. Yesterday I spent all day dipping and dying fabric and I could not be happier with the results. As the seasons change so has my colour palette, I've currently in love with this shade of blue and I so I've added it to my palette. 

My next step will be converting these textiles in loveable huggable one of a kind pillows. So Stay tuned
