"handwoven tapestries"
Weaving is like painting or drawing for me. I create most fluidly through threads with my hands.
Trained under master weavers at the Gobelins Manufactory in Paris, France, and at the Fondazione Arte Della Seta Lisio in Florence, Italy , my tapestries are woven on both an ancient frame loom and a digital "Jacquard" loom. The relationship between the ancient analogue and the contemporary digital textile fabrication methods are linked by a thread that connect the ancient practice of woven storytelling with the contemporary digital world.
