My early handwoven tapestries were largely figurative in nature and reflected my desire to represent the plants, animals, landscapes and culture of the desert. Most were designed from my own photographs or sketches. When I began to realize that what I really wanted to capture was not what I see, but how what I see makes me feel, my work began to change. Recent weavings have evolved into abstract and non-objective interpretations, which are more expressive and pure renderings of my inspirations. I weave with commercially and naturally dyed wools, cotton, bamboo, hemp, silk, rayon, linen, paper, waxed linen, sea silk, fishing net, silk wrapped steel and other fibers.
