Fabric Printing, Stamping and Dyeing

I am a textile artist and art teacher, with almost thirty years of a career dedicated to the resist dyeing methods of Batik and Shibori, and the universe of fibres. I have practiced Batik on fabric and on paper for 17 consecutive years and the other years were mostly dedicated to Shibori. In the last few years, I have been also fascinated by the world of stamping and printing, which I love to combine with dyed surfaces. I have a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts and Education, a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts/Textiles and a Certificate in Expressive Arts Therapy. I combine all my studies and work experiences in my teachings, transferring my knowledge while fostering students’ creativity, imagination and their search for individual expression. I have worked with people of all ages and backgrounds as a mixed-media art teacher and as a textile art teacher, offering short and long programs in a variety of settings and class formats. I love leading community projects and facilitating collective artwork, helping people to connect through art and the unique qualities of textiles.
