Description of Business or Organization

I have an e-store at http://www.silkenwind.bigcartel.com and a blog that describes my artistic journey at http://silkenwind.com. I am a dyer, specializing in natural dyes including locally gathered lichens. I use many techniques to embellish fabric, including wax batik, embroidery, lace making, knitting, shibori. My unique art cloths become silk scarves, other wearables and art for the home. I teach fiber art classes to adults and children. I also craft gourd rattles for ceremonial use.

How did Evergreen prepare you for your professional life?

Critical thinking and interdisciplinary study and research constantly enhance my creative pursuits. My artistic life thrives when I think outside the box, as I learned to do at Evergreen.
