ABOUT THE WORK

Hand dyed linen canvas with natural Indigo. Oil pastel, AcrylicI have been exploring the historical, heritage, dye of Indigo. Originally from the Southeast of USA, I am interested in this crop that used to be the largest export in this region in the 1700s. It rivaled Europe's production at one time and it was started by a women named Eliza Lucas Pinckney. As a Southern female artist I have focused on integrating this dye into my most recent work.
