The Dress Series spans a time of healing and moving forward. Through painting, hand stitching, colors and words I am processing complex realities. In my Tea Bag dresses, I created fabric by sewing together used tea bags while exploring the healing comfort that comes from the ordinary—even a simple cup of tea. These creative works accompany me during this sustained and ongoing contemplative journey.
When I first made the robes I wondered, “How could a garment transform you simply by putting it on? What does your garment say about who you are? Maybe a throw back to “dressing up”, it seemed that what you wore could change how you felt about yourself. I invite you to use your imagination and try one on.
