An Intimate Connection
Birgit is an enthusiastic explorer of natural dyes, especially of eco printing, a direct contact dye method, that draws out pigments from leaves onto fabric.
She is passionate about experimenting with the endless combinations of eco printing to achieve sophisticated and unique results, often unexpected. Although using a two dimensional technique, the natural and unevenly colours of the prints turn them into a work with a three dimensional impression.
Her work and sustainable processes reflecting her connection to her immediate environment at the doorstep of the Tararua Ranges.
As a textile artist she is trying to find new ways of mark making onto fabrics and sometimes on paper.
