Through the process of making, I meditate on the nostalgia I feel for a rapidly disappearing landscape. I studied drawing and painting in school, but taught myself to weave in late 2018. In my art, I use fragmented abstract imagery to piece together my experiences moving from the wild Alaskan landscape to the more urban East Coast area.
Weaving is much like painting as I plan my palette of fibers with value, saturation in mind while considering the relationships between sheen and texture.
I hope that others can find value in the patience and time it takes to construct each weaving and savor the slow observation it may take to enjoy art in our fast-paced busy lives.
