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!

It's April already and the rush is on. Taxes and Paperwork and Visiting Relatives and Deadlines!
Here are the pictures of the finished Feng Shui Series piece " Ochre Earth of the Southwest, Relationship Success"(right). It is 41"x 40"and I'll deliver it on Tuesday. Hope the client likes it.
To the left is a detail of the center and you can see the series of lines in the middle which is a trigram from the I Ching , Book of Changes and represents the Earth.
I managed to get a ways into the next one , a green Feng Shui piece called " Green Wood of the East, Health Augmentation" and I'll post the finished piece in the next blog so stay tuned.

Above you can see the differing sizes of the "mountains" or "bubbles " I use for the different widths of greens in the piece. I constantly adjust these as I go by making sure each warp is staying straight and not wiggling left and right along the length of the work.

On the news front I've been ask to put a show together in the gallery/office space of my local County Commissioner. That will be June 4th, reception 5-7pm through July 14th ( right before Convergence so if you are here early you could check it out) and it will be on the 10th floor of our Albuquerque/ Bernallillo County City/ County Building that connects right to the Convention Center. And also a show for my gallery in Madrid, The Tapestry Gallery that will have a Saturday opening right before Convergence begins .So back to the loom
I go.


  1. Wow busy Lady. Seems that you are like a little spider. I would love to go to Convergence and admire your fresh beautiful work, but can't make it this time. Congratulations in all you are doing.I like your work, but most of it is the bright colours you work with.
    Happy Easter!
