I have a hard time considering myself as an artist but my creations are an expression of the passion the Lord has placed in my heart for Praise. I always start by turning the time over to Abba and asking for His special touch. Music that glorifies the Father is a must. He knows where each piece will go ultimately and it is such a joy to see the expression on individuals' faces when their fabric first speaks to them.
I really began creating flags for my own use in worship but when other people saw them, they encouraged me to make more for them as well, and so I began to sell my fabric creations. Any profit I make is used to help with my mission trip expenses when I travel with my church.
I started experimenting with fabrics and quickly settled on silk. Now I work exclusively with both 5 mm and lush 8 mm haboti silk for flags, veils and billows. I use Jacquard silk colors.
I cleared an area in my garage to work as my studio. It is large enough to lay down a sheet of plywood for my work area and I made a couple of 2X4 frames for stretching the fabric. I made a steamer out of a stove pipe from instructions I found on the Internet. I am self-taught and have never had any formal training or experience with dying fabrics. I have only been at it for a few years so I am still learning by trial and error. I am always on the lookout for new ideas and techniques to try.
