With over 25 years experience designing fabrics and heading design departments at major textile companies, combining colors uniquely, imaginatively and successfully has been the cornerstone of my career, and the inspiration for my company name, AboutColor.
My previous work was in printed fabrics. Fabric was solely a surface to be painted until I fell in love with weaving, felting and now dyeing. The magic of weaving is that it allows me to color fabrics from the inside. I can build exquisite and complex palettes, painting with the yarns and letting them play with each other in unexpected ways.
Using techniques such as mixing yarns with varying shrinkage to create three-dimensional cloth adds magic and surprise to both my felting and weaving work.
Prior to moving to Asheville, NC, AboutColor was strictly a woven trim business represented in Atlanta at the design center in the Travis showroom.
