About Me

My photo
Albuquerque, NM, United States
I have been weaving Contemporay Fine Art Tapestries for over 20 years, raising a family in the lovely Southwest. I want to show process which usually gets a back seat to product and share the trials and tribulations as well as the joy and excitement of the creation of art out of a bunch of strings. How remarkable!

As promised here are a few of the last completed tapestry commission. The Clients were very happy with it, ( I saw a few problems but I don't point them out . Overall I thought it quite successful. Commissions are always a bit stressful as you have a very thought out end product to create and your imagining of it and the clients have to meet somewhere close. And color choices are not always your own. ( In this commission it was a color scheme fueled by the client's handmade quilt on the bed that this was going over) I use this panoramic format a lot for pieces over a bed. Seems to fit the bill for that kind of space and use .As to details , which I think are very informative for both fellow weavers and prospective clients alike, the piece took 11 days to complete, was
30"x 47" in size and cost to clients was $2,500.00 and they paid the shipping costs.
These were collectors and they are already thinking of a third piece so again all in all Success!.
Here is a picture of it in progress and a photo of finished piece.

Next week I'll post the problems and joys of the newest commission, 20'' in on a 55" piece, also for clients who own more than one piece. Here is a photo of their first commissioned piece. They live in the foothills of the Sandias and both pieces have particular views from different windows in their house. Quite a challenge considering the small scale. (This piece is 68"x 40" and sold for $3,600.00)
