Exploring imagery in shibori and indigo dyeing is my main focus. I work with silk, cotton, linen and rayon principally and enjoy the simple forms of a scarf or furoshiki. Japan is a strong influence, as my formative years were spent in Kagoshima in southern Kyushu.



An early immersion in a culture and time where daily work and creating was “by hand” only, made a deep impression in my formative years. I not only developed a work ethic, but also a desire to be a “maker.” Exploring indigo and shibori is where I find authenticity.

Currently, I work in my home studio, teach workshops in Raleigh and other various locations in North Carolina. I sell my pieces on Etsy and also do custom work. Recently I dyed jeans for a local jeans company, Raleigh Denim, where they sold at Barney’s in New York.

    Beautiful work, Susan! That top shibori piece is quite mesmerizing.

      Thank you! Apologies for my tardy reply…the rabbit & moon motif is a favorite.
