This one-of-a-kind linen wall-hanging was handwoven on a large floor loom. It was created from the warp waste (yarn that is leftover on the loom) from previous weaving projects. A tiny knot marks the spot where each strand of yarn changes color. The pleasure of creating the is piece was in discovering the shifts in color and the pulsing rhythm of the composition.

I create unique, multi-dimensional, and airy textile wall-hangings. As a long time oil painter turned textile artist, I think of myself as a painter who weaves. I traded in my oil paints and easel for colorful linen yarns and a large wooden floor loom. Although much of my work is now three-dimensional, 1950’s color field painting and 19th century impressionist painting are still huge inspirations. My larger artworks are studies in optics and color, while my smaller works are abstract designs that come about like stream-of-conscious thought. The resulting work is ethereal, delicately beautiful, and subtly emotive. In the process of making, I always think about screens and the act of seeing through many layers. Seeing the world through fog, looking through long blades of grass, or seeing the sky through the thatched branches of a forest, I find the beauty in these layers.More About Artist
