As an artist, my goal is to weave tapestries that lend beauty and a sense of quiet to the places they inhabit. Where some of my work reflects an inner call for peace, other tapestries may address the intensifying discord in our world. Feeling that often less is more, my designs are intentionally spare, exploring rhythm and asymmetry in bold compositions. Weaving attracts me for its simplicity: two opposing sets of threads twining together to create a whole. Working at the loom provides me the opportunity to sit in the stillness of my thoughts, allowing my hands to think.
