I started tapestry weaving about ten years ago and I enjoy the quiet way the pieces evolve. I do mostly landscapes and simple geometric designs. I weave on hand made frame looms built by my husband. I try to capture some of the beauty of New Mexico in my landscape weavings. Many of the geometric designs are based on Southwest native American patterns.
I do mostly smaller sized pieces that can be hung on a wall like a painting. They are all strung to a frame so that the character of the weaving is displayed.
Recently my husband and I have collaborated to incorporate other media into the weavings. Metal, wood, and ceramics have been used to produce pieces with a truly sculptural character.
