I am a Fiber Artist, weaving large rugs and wall hangings. Initially, the yarn speaks to me. I lean in and listen. My current designs, are drawn from symmetrical and geometric shapes, using bold colors or just dark and light yarns to express my vision. B&W is a series I have been working on for many years, it keeps calling to me to explore new ground.
Weaving, using the interlacement of yarns, gives me an outlet to express myself that I haven’t been able to find elsewhere. My work is about ornament and texture, skilled labor, timeless beauty, and the inner spirit made visible.
