Petal-una is a micro-collection of one-of-a-kind wearable art pieces built around hand-dyed, painted, printed, textured and felted cloth. Each piece originates and is manufactured, one at a time, in my Atlanta, Georgia studio.
I have been creating art-textiles for over 20 years and have been building felted garments for 10 of those years. Petal-una was launched in the Fall of 2012 as an on-going wearable art project involving a number of different textile techniques and materials, including but not limited to felted cloth. Since its inception, distinctive, one-of-a-kind fabrics are developed each season for Petal-Una's very limited art-to-wear collections. These collections have become a regular and integral part of my creative practice. The work emerging from this collection inspires, and is inspired by, the other streams of my creative process.
