I have been blessed with having beautiful friends who graciously agree to model my garments for me. These gals, Jem and Sasha, are particularly special because we see each other every day of the week at school (yes, we do sometimes spend EVERY day in the weaving and surface design studios). I have shared so many wonderful times with these gals and have great respect for them as artists.
Sasha is the Indigo queen, she is such a specialist that she is braving dyeing her wedding dress as well as her fiances wedding attire in indigo (very exciting). She is also a master quilter, breaking traditional barriers by dyeing her own fabrics and drawing meaning from the materials, techniques and images that she uses.
Jem masters all techniques with great precision. She tends to mix her mediums with nostalgic conceptual references to create eloquent masterpieces.
Both Sash and Jem have recently started blogging which is very exciting to me. Check out their blogs bellow:
