Watercolorist Kathy Goss is exploring a new combination of water and color.

By extracting color from plant materials, Kathy creates beautiful artwork on fabric. Natural fibers such as silk, linen, and cotton are simmered in a pot of extracted dye, or rolled up with plant material and steamed to make a direct print.
