Artist Statement: This work uses various shibori techniques that were later put into the same indigo vat. The quiet interplay of pattern in the blues coupled with commercially printed white cottons expresses the idea of dignity: standing tall while drawing strength from creative forces within.

Size: 40″ x 24″

Materials: Cotton, both hand dyed indigo that has been Shibori-resisted in a variety of techniques and commercially printed cottons.

Techniques: Dyed with Shibori techniques, pieced, and machine stitched by the artist.
