Louise Perrin | Maple Creek, SK
“I am strongly influenced by the wide-open land and skyscapes that surround me in creating my work. I am still on the journey exploring my work. These days my images often start with my own photographs capturing the subtle beauty found in the prairie landscape.”
The marbled look of Louise’s silk and cotton scarves is achieved through a process called “snow-dyeing”. Treated fabric is covered with snow. The dye is sprayed on top of the snow. As the snow melts, the “design” is determined by how much the snow has diluted the dye, and where the dye hits the fabric first.
