I've been a modernist for years. It's exhilerating to bring that aesthetic to such an established artform. As a "modern tapestry weaver," I take cues from modern and contemporary art, interior design trends and the fast paced world around me; both inside and outside of my home. I often name pieces after people who've impacted me during the duration of a weaving's creation, an event or words that have impacted me or something that makes me smile.
I work mostly in wool fibers and use cotton warp. I have several frame looms - some as small as 8 inches wide. My largest loom is 60 inches wide. Commissions make me happy and are the life's blood of my practice. Working with clients to select colors, techniques and styles within their budget thrills me!
