Long before I became a dyer, I was a photographer and printer. I worked exclusively in black and white, monochromatic. Learning to see the world in monochrome is to rewire the way you look at things. Texture, form, light, dark, contrast, the positive and the negative spaces paint the way you perceive what you see. Like a light switch that you learn to turn on and off, color steps back and away. Try it. Playing with the way you see things is fun. It is one more of things I enjoy about winter. Ice and reflection are less about color, and more the abstract, my comfort zone.
