Botanical Prints

All of my prints and dyes are created directly from the botanicals using mordants (iron, vinegar, copper, alum) to coax the color from the leaves, flowers and stems.
I use Eucalyptus, walnut, catalpa, rose, oak, maple and experiment with many others.
Below are just a few examples of my work on various fabrics using botanical.
