Making a tapestry is my passion. Given only working two elements; the warp and the weft, I am fascinated by all the possibilities. Within this simple grid format, I can create color, shape, line, and texture using a variety of organic weft materials and color blends. The possibilities seem infinite and I continue to be mesmerized.
