weft-faced plain weave tapestry. hand-dyed wool and acrylic yarns. approx. 20" x 36", 2017.

Weaving is the marriage of image and object, building fabric from scratch. The revelation between empty warp and finished cloth feels mythic: at first there was nothing, and now here is something. Weaving tells stories, textiles are connected to text. The rhythm of shape and color in my tapestries is a poem. A line of color running up the side is marginalia. The knots that finish the cut ends are a signature. I dye my own yarn to brew my own vocabulary; I salvage yarn from thrift stores and by unraveling sweaters to reclaim words that have been lost to me.

I weave because weaving sits at the center of all of these influences simultaneously, and these influences cannot be disentangled.
