Having spent most of my web-identity energy on ribbons and ribbon-related projects for the last several years, it is time to show the artwork that comes out of my busy studio as well. I have multiple artistic identities which balance art, craft, and design; most are textile-oriented and drawing-based. So now, in no particular order, I will begin to catalogue the artwork that I make. This consists primarily of hand woven “tapestries”, actually made with a brocading technique. I call them tapestries because they hang on walls in the old tapestry tradition.
Today’s post is of recent work, tapestries which are based on the landscape and rural buildings in the vicinity of my new home in New Harmony, Indiana.
