I began taking weaving classes about twenty years ago. It was challenging to create complex braille weaving patterns and work out techniques so that I could do the entire weaving process independently.
Now I feel great joy throwing the shuttle and having my fingertips discover the complex patterns I have created coming alive on the loom. At first my work focused on textures and I kept the colors simple, but with the encouragement of my teacher, I have a better understanding of color theory and incorporate more color in my work. I see color as music — one color might be a cheerful little melody in a major key, while another is a bold strong sound. Add them together and you have a new piece of hand-woven artwork.
