Artist Statement:

Tapestry remains my favorite means of artistic expression.  The limitations of the weaving grid are freeing, as form can be for poetry.  I like to feel the creative sparks as I work my way around those limitations.  It’s also a slow and meditative process.  At times I use my own photographs, “tweaking” them to enhance the image and paying close attention to what I’m actually seeing instead of what I “think” I’m seeing.  I also play with geometry, illusions, what I find in the natural world, or just doodle. I have been exploring different facets of tapestry, including techniques from many parts of the world, facial expression, and 3-dimensional tapestry.  I hope soon to try weaving larger pieces, especially those using layered image, both as technique and as metaphor.  I would also like to explore the intersection of woven image and poetry. The possibilities are endless!

Artist Bio:

I did not become truly entangled in the strands of the Fiber Arts world until I was almost 50, although I have always loved the textures of yarn running through my fingers and the interplay of colors.  I learned to spin yarn in 2003 and was subsequently introduced to Spin-Off magazine.   When I first saw an article about a tapestry weaver who was spinning her own weaving yarn, along with photos of her magnificent and whimsical work, I was completely entranced!   Since then, I have taken many tapestry classes and workshops, plus other weaving classes.
