Featured Artist : Greg Anderson | Dye Monster

Artist Bio / Statement

Howdy! I am Greg Anderson, and I am addicted to tie-dye.  ((Hi, Greg!))  I got serious about it back in the late 1980s, and pretty much lived to tie-dye until I copped out and decided to finish up my degree in 1994, eventually going to work as an analytical chemist in 1998. During this dark period, I was only dyeing once or twice a year, usually for charity or to teach others.

I got laid off in 2010 and discovered that I really didn't enjoy being a chemist nearly so much as I enjoyed being a tie-dye artist, so I formed in 2012, and now I am back at it full-time.  Working from home gave me a chance to care for my wife who was (successfully) battling cancer at the time, and allowed me to schedule around her needs.  I mostly enjoy doing t-shirts, but occasionally I do some tapestries, bandanas, dresses, leggings, and other garments.  I find the dynamics of dye chemistry quite fascinating, and strive to learn a little more every day about both the art and science of tie-dye.  I prefer to fold and tie my pieces using rubber bands and sinew rather than stitching, and I use Dharma Procion-type fiber reactive dyes for most of my work.  I am located in Richland in eastern Washington State.
