Artist Bio / Statement
In the early 70s, my friend, Alan Campbell, and I happened on to a business of painting on fabric for Parrish-Hadley, a leading New York decorator… We had no idea what we were doing. This lead me to painting kaftans for Halston, kimono for Bergdorf Goodman, a large environment in Soho; “Beginning Sphere,” 42 panels of silk 14’ x 4’ based on Buddhist teachings, plus several other commissions for banners. Somehow, I have learned over the years my own little technique for fabric painting which consists of bees wax resist, and Dharma Trading’s fabric and Fiber Reactive Procion dyes.
