My most recent piece ("Ray") is a woven wall hanging inspired by abstract expressionist artist, painter Ray Parker. Parker was from the midwest and was most prolific in the 1950s and 60s. He was perhaps most well-known for his Simple Paintings in the color field style, described as featuring joyous, amoebic forms floating on a white background.
In color field painting, artists use color and form to express emotion. Does this piece conjure up any feelings?
My work - almost a dozen wall hangings and one-of-a-kind modern tassels - will be included in this year’s Birmingham-Bloomfield Art Center (BBAC) Holiday Shop, December 2-21 in Birmingham, Michigan. Open Monday-Saturday 10-6 and Sunday 12-4.
Holiday Shop includes dozens of other artists and is a great opportunity to support artists and the art center, buy local and check off your gift list!
yarns and snippets is a little corner where I'll share some writing, recording my story in a way that's more comfortable for me - long form over social media. so, a bit of a journal and a record of my work, workshops, markets and weaving and knotting journey.
