ABOUT THE ARTIST:
"I am a fiber artist, and work primarily in the medium of woven tapestry. Over the last four decades I have designed and made close to a hundred pieces, including several commissioned works for public buildings. Themes that have inspired my work include landscapes, and the weather, and various botanical sources -- trees, and weeds, and farm fields, and flower gardens."
