About me

Tapestry

 

 I am a methodical and results oriented person, but also one who loves color, texture, and  design.  Weaving satisfies both.  The warping and planning is methodical and mathematical. The weaving process is meditative and spontaneous. I lay out my colorway on my work table using hundreds of pieces of yarn  in the form of cones, skeins, and scraps.  I adjust until it feels good.  Then I start weaving.    When I sit at my loom and weave , I don't think too  much about the end result.  It's all about the colors and textures unfolding in  my hands.    


Mixed Media

 Using watercolor, oil paint, oil pastel, and cold wax medium, silk threads and fabrics, I explore the interactions between the shapes and colors of my textiles while attempting to bring the  illusion of the depth and texture of fiber to a flat surface.
