Handwoven Fabric

I’m pleased to show you some of my creations that use hand-woven fabric. Click on any of the photos to see more details. I encourage you to come back often to see what’s new!

Tempus Fugit

I used my own woven fabric and commercial cottons with an improvisational piecing style to create this wallhanging. Embellished with antique pocket watches, watch gears, and my own handmade beads made from magazine pages it could have only one name: time flies! This piece measures 32.5 x 48 inches.

Grandma's Legacy

My Grandmother was an artist, and she passed this love and talent down to me. However, that is not the only part of my grandmother that went into this wall hanging; the yarn I used to weave my own fabric and the tatting were hers, so this is truly her legacy! This piece measures 32.5 x 19 inches.

Celestial Journey

Planets glowing in the distant night sky invoke thoughts of mystery, travel, and surprise; this wall hanging is a reminder of the mystery of the galaxy and the fascination shared by humans to unravel the mysteries of the universe. I used some of my own woven fabric, linen, and crepe fabric to make this piece. This piece measures 36.5 x 14.

Weaver's Dream

Weaving is the very basis of textile art, so I wanted to experience weaving myself. The center of this wall hanging uses my own woven fabric, which I distorted by stretching it and inserting additional threads. Then I sewed linen and cotton fabrics into this four-panel form. This piece measures 27 x 16 inches.

Possibility

This is another piece that really grew and changed as I made it, so I named it "Possibility" after all the possible ways I saw to create this design. I used some of my own woven fabric and cottons and used the matchstick quilting style to add texture and interest. This piece measures 24 x 23 inches.
