My art is weaving. I am inspired by my personal experiences of natural phenomena, travel, reading, and social issues. Recently my primary body of work is with digital jacquard weaving. Jacquard weaving has a rich history since it was invented in 18 C. but a small size loom wasn’t available for the weavers recently. For the past three years, I have been experimenting with the weaving technique to create graphic, abstract pieces, natural beauty and portray with a digital jacquard loom. As my weaving has progressed, I have spent more and more time on the relationship between color and weaving structure. It is unlike the painting two color mixtures with different structures revealed different results which intrigues me the most. Visitors will see a digital jacquard loom and the weaving process.
