Tapestry Bound


Making a tapestry is my passion. Given only working two elements; the warp and the weft, I am fascinated by all the possibilities that one can explore. Within this simple grid format, I can add color, and even more color; shape, line, thick or thin; texture, a variety of weft materials and then you will find patterns that can be repeated, distorted, or diminished, ignored, or embellished. I add tension in certain areas to develop a third dimension.

The possibilities seem infinite and I continue to be mesmerized.
