Making my weavings from what nature provides, the sheep, the flax, and the flowers and plants is so very inspirational. I live on 3/4 of an acre so I can grow many of the plants I need. Being a part of the history of weaving and representing this group of artisans is such an honor. We no longer need to weave our clothes or our rugs as in the past but the quality, heart and soul that goes into every product that present day weavers create brings that same history and honor into your home.
Q&A with the Artist
Tell us how your work is made.
I have been weaving since 2009 with monocular vision. I survived two brain tumor surgeries that year but lost the vision in my right eye. Without vision in both eyes, you have no depth perception. That was initially a major challenge in my weaving. But the plasticity of the brain is completely stunning. Over time.....maybe a year.....the brain started to pick up on shadows and lighting. Soon I could determine more easily which threads were lifted up on the loom and which ones were down. Amazing.
