“I am a tapestry weaver.  I create art for the wall using yarn as my medium.  I first design my work, using as a start, either photography, painting, drawing or collage.  I continue working with the image until I reach a weavable cartoon.  I leave many decisions of what the final image will look like until I am at the loom, employing weaving techniques to produce shading, movement and the forms that make up the image.  I build my tapestry line by line, shape by shape, until I have a finished piece.”
