Tapestry Portfolio

 I often work in series to explore subjects that interest me.

My earliest tapestries expressed my fascination with the human face. After several years of exploring the face, I expanded my weaving to include the full figure. This decision propelled me to weave larger than life portraits as you will see in Amandaconda and Pas de Deux for example. In these works not only the size of the portrait is enlarged but the sett of the warp as well, almost pixilating my subject with each bead of the weft as it covers the warp. These portraits are literally, poetically, and metaphysically LARGER than LIFE to heighten the emotion and drama. I also love weaving small, intimate figures as seen in many of my works.
