My weaving practice explores the complexities of understanding - the dissonance between thought patterns and our visual and physical landscapes. Living in arid eastern Washington – among valleys and mountains that ever show the disturbance of water on surfaces –shapes my practice. My work holds that tension – fluidity and fixity. A self-taught weaver, I approach these ideas through the constraints of a floor loom. Working with materials such as paper, steel and linen, I create delicate, ethereal wall and ceiling hangings. Each piece is planned with mathematical precision before work begins on the loom. I came to weaving through a project as an Americorps volunteer, creating a Textile Center to showcase local fiber artists. Shortly after, I purchased my first loom and began the steady process of teaching myself how to warp a loom and weave. I work across scales, from postage stamp-sized weavings to space-specific installations, to create contemporary objects, wall hangings and light

My weaving practice explores the complexities of how we understand ourselves. A self-taught weaver, I approach these ideas through the constraints of a floor loom. Beginning with the intrinsic intersection of warp with weft, each piece is based on historical weaving structures. Planned with mathematical precision, pattern and line are questioned to manipulate the woven grid – to change it, layer over it – pulling out subtleties thread by thread.
