Thank You For Stopping By!
Welcome! My name is Val and I am a fiber artist based in El Sereno. My art is for whoever it reaches. I use natural ingredients to create dye baths for single colored items and bundle steam with others. Some natural ingredients that I use are: avocado skins, eucalyptus leaves, marigold flowers, hibiscus flowers, and turmeric along with many others.
The colors that you see are the result of intention. Often taking days to see an end result- natural dye process is one that connects me to earth and makes me feel good. I hope it does the same for you! This is an ancient art process in which I want to pay respect to those before me- using set practices that have existed far before I have.
This is for my mom who used her hands to create beautiful things and for anyone who heals through art.
