My adventure into Tie Dyeing started in 2017 when my wife, who is an accomplished photographer and artist, became interested in Shibori. After watching her create amazing patterns on fabric I became interested. Having been a lifelong Dead Head I was not unfamiliar with tie dyed clothing. It was when she started experimenting with multiple colors and found out about ice dyeing that I jumped in and started what would become my latest obsession.
Since that fateful day, when I made a huge mess in our kitchen and succeeded in ruining several garments, I have been a student of Tie Dye. I am constantly trying new folds, reverse engineering designs and using any tools I can find to help perfect my patterns.
There are so many Artists I am grateful to for sharing their hard earned knowledge. Without whose generosity I would never have been able to begin what I hope is a long and fun filled adventure.
Learning about color theory continues to help me immensely in furthering my understanding of this amazing Art.
