This Takes Time

Every tapestry weaver will tell you the most commonly asked question is, "How long does this take you?" How do I begin to answer that? Do I include the time involved in the planning, design, yarn preparation, loom set up, weaving, finishing, and the mounting process? My answer often is, "think slow, not fast."



Thoughts : Pensamientos

This piece is part of an ongoing series concerned with the precise use of language needed when we express our thoughts. Can we really know another person's interior space? Two different languages add greater complexity to the task and care must be taken when words have multiple meanings.

This piece was a finalist for the 2013 Kate Derum Award.

Tip Top

Tip Top Diner in Rochester, New York was inspiration for this artwork. The car was just too cool for the short order cook, he had to look.
