Still Lifes in Indigo: Exploring the Wabi-Sabi Spirit is a new series of work. I am using some of my old Japanese boro fabrics as backgrounds to create settings for objects that contain a wabi-sabi spirit. These pieces are explorations of texture, color and form. They allow me to combine my love of beautiful, shapely fall leaves with my love of vintage boro fabrics and thread painting in new and interesting ways.
