Inspired by Texas
In weaving this series of Texas eco region I noticed how I have come to internalize the landscapes which surround me. If I would have been a painter in the middle ages I would have taken my easel outside and painted what I saw. As a structural weaver I transfer the landscape in an abstract version into my weft.
