Marbled Wearables and Accessories

I create wearables using the ancient art form of marbling. Each piece of fabric is made by floating paints on a liquid in a large tray. I pull custom-made rakes and combs through the floating paints to create a delicate feathered pattern. Then, I lay a piece of white fabric on the floating paint pattern.

These original pieces of fabric are used to create one-of-a-kind garments, which are designed to accentuate the movement of the marbling.  I marble, design and sew all my garments and accessories. Each piece is an original that can never be exactly duplicated!
