I create handwoven panels that use color and structure to express movement and depth. Color is what delights and inspires me. Color is what I see first and foremost as I move through the world.
Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
My weavings most often begin with a color palette based on place; the design follows. Using a computer, the design is created in black and white then the color palette is overlayed on design. A printout from the design software becomes my guide to hand weave the color and pattern changes. I hand-dye cotton yarn. I'm excited to see the colors of yarn when they come out of the dye pot and to see an image develop once the yarn is on the loom.
