Contemporary handwoven artwear
Color and comfort are two very important elements in my life, work and world. I am a handweaver of wearables, living and working in the high desert plateau country of Galisteo, New Mexico.
I am very influenced by the subtle, natural colors that surround me and dazzled by the array of brilliantly colored yarns that adorn the floor to ceiling shelves of my studio. Currently, I weave primarily with rayon chenille and cotton yarns adding other luxurious fiber accents occasionally. I find the comfort, drape and wearability of this woven fabric to be unsurpassed by any other fiber. Its hand is luxurious. It is suitable for three seasons of wear and has a rich lustrous depth of shade.
I love to weave. My body craves the rhythmic motion. I began weaving after years of sewing with a desire to go one step further and create my own fabric for clothing design. I’ve been weaving for thirty-four years, and in that time, I have experimented with innumerable yarns, weave structures and applications. I believe that the craft of handweaving can fascinate a devotee for a lifetime, with its infinite color and texture combinations.
