Jacquard Weaving

I began the process with a photo. I then assigned weave structures to each shade of the photo with design software 'Pointcarre'. She was then handwoven on a jacquard loom producing a one-of-a-kind tapestry. If interested in purchasing this piece please contact me.

Artist Statement

 I have a continuing relationship with a loom. This relationship spans 20 years and involves looms of 16 and 32 shafts. I'm in the process of enhancing my jacquard loom.

The process of taking a  single thread (weft) and moving it over or under a single or group of threads (warp) producing cloth which  protects, warms, adorns, and inspires is ancient as well as a modern experience.

As I design and weave, I use pattern and detail to enhance color and texture with fibers of silk, wool, cotton and rayon producing unique items of art.
