The bags I make are a reflection of function, with a splash of fun thrown in. I am influenced by the relationship of shapes and colors, the intersection of perceived objects and backgrounds. Hence, Geometries.

Product: Fiber Arts: Hand-Marbled Silk Scarves & Clothing
Email: annesmarbling@gmail.com

I’ve lived in Ann Arbor for more than 20 years and began marbling in Oregon. Marbling is an ancient art in which paints are floated on the surface of a thin gel, then manipulated with a series of rakes and combs to create intricate patterns. Fabric is then carefully laid onto the surface. The pattern absorbs instantly into the fabric. Today, I focus on hand-marbled clothing made out of cotton and silk for babies, children and adults.

With concern about clothing sent to the landfill or sent overseas to destroy clothing markets, I make clothing from the most overproduced piece of apparel: the t-shirt. I design and fabricate each dress, skirt, and shirt.

  Lightweight totes, purses, and accessories made of gorgeous fabrics.  Practical and affordable, too.

I learned to sew at the age of 7. Many years later I found some free upholstery samples and made a few bags – the story is on my website. I’ve been my own boss since age 23 when I quit my job of 1 year. I decided then that I would never work in an office again.

I have been working in color through fabric since 1997, creating bright, vibrant placemats, table runners, napkins, wallhangings, and quilts in many colorways.  I also offer many items featuring my original photographs and illustrations, such as throw pillows, Ann Arbor souvenir t-shirts, greeting cards, magnets and more.  Animals, trees, flowers, nature, and women are frequent themes in my work.  I follow the philosophy of William Morris: “Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”
