The “wearable art” dimension of Skove’s work is based on an awareness of how to use color and form to enhance both the clothing and its wearer. She carefully places images and chooses hues that pair with “fashionable” tones. Skove has learned to use many shades of a given color; thus, even as color in apparel is tweaked from one year to the next, the work will span many seasons.
