Tactile woven and hand-knotted work inspired by the natural world around us - woolly animals, flowers, weeds, clouds - and by the materials themselves.
Making things brings me a new sense of joy. While I've tinkered and explored my creativity off and on for decades, I've never dedicated time and energy to my own practice until I began regularly weaving and knotting in 2020.
There are so many incredible, natural fibers to work with - they are an art unto themselves. I try to honor them in pieces that are tactile and floofy, asking to be touched, combed or fluffed.
My work primarily includes wall hangings woven on frame looms and hand-knotted modern macrame wall hangings. Learning knot-tying is still a fundamental interest - I continue working through The Ashley Book of Knots (the encyclopedia of knots) to learn both functional and decorative knotting techniques.
