Woven Tartans, Tapestries & Uniquely Textured Textiles

About the Art:

I have been weaving a variety of textiles for more than 25 years. My eclectic collection of scarves includes classic Scottish tartans, colorful casual styles, and richly patterned designs. I weave mostly with silk, tencel, and chenille; and many of my scarves are accented with novelty yarns and ribbons. In addition to scarves, I also weave small tapestries framed for the wall. Inspiration for my abstract designs comes from sources as varied as a collection of cloisonné enamels, the play of color in an opal, the twinkle of lights across the bay at midnight, or from my own personal response to natural disasters or significant social events.
