Black & White is a series of Handwoven Wall Hangings - Wool & Linen, Sizes are 3x5 ft. each. The total width would be approximately 10 feet wide. Designed and woven by the artist in 2015. The piece is also known as "So Much Struggle Series", due to it's complexity and time it took to design and weave this piece. "With this triptych of hangings, my goal was to explore a simple design and then push that design in it's complexity to something new and different. They are physical and tactile creating a sacred, or spiritual space within, crying out to be touched. Using only black and white yarn instead of colors, let me explore the design process even more. Like my other hangings, this piece is about ornament and texture, skilled labor, timeless beauty, and the inner spirit made visible." Her works can be found in private and public collections. She hopes to share her love of design, fiber and weaving with those who view her work.
