I focus on color and texture using rayon, cotton, linen, silk and other yarns, and beating lightly to enhance drape. I construct garments using designs that I create and traditional patterns that I modify. Fringe adds movement and carries forward the folk lore of protection. I work to balance loom-produced yardage with body shapes for best fit and wearability. Each piece has been washed and is hand washable. They are best on bodies, and I encourage people to try them on.
My clothing is woven on two looms in my living room in Gray, Tennessee, near Johnson City. From intricate pattern-weaving through tapestries, most of my work became garments, and handwoven clothing is now my concentration. I have been weaving since 1986.
