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….and has evolved into a micro, stand-alone, artisan-apparel line.
Since its inception, distinctive, one-of-a-kind fabrics are developed each season for Petal-Una’s very limited art-to-wear collections.
I have been creating art-textiles for over 20 years and have been building felted garments for 10 of those years. I am energized by color, texture, surface and avail myself of all of the tools and techniques available to the small workshop to realize unique cloth for apparel. The collections created seasonally for Petal-Una 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. I am delighted to be able to share this work with others!
