Weaving is and has been my passion for over 50 years. Using weaving software and experimenting on my 32-shaft compudobby loom is fun and challenging. My profession as a graphic designer has led me to create large graphic shapes in my weaving. Adding color, texture and various yarn fibers makes the possibilities never-ending.


Handwoven in an original pattern on 32 shafts, the structure is similar to turned Summer & Winter or Taquete, but not quite that. The pattern is adapted from an unnamed drawdown seen in “Pattern Techniques for Handweavers” by Doramay Keasbey.
