Igniting Creative Change - February 2017

This month brought a new and interesting challenge - preparing to be a presenter at this free, on-line summit coordinated by my friend and colleague, Sylvia Schroeder, founder of Innerweaving. My topic will be The Influence of Artistic Process. Sylvia invited twenty of what she calls "the world's leading influencers" to share how we ignite creative change in ourselves and others. Learn more and register HERE. The summit begins on March 6th. I'm excited to participate and learn from others. Please join us!

Travel Yarns in Tucson - January 2017

My new lecture, Travel Yarns, debuted at the January program of the Tucson Handweavers and Spinners Guild, followed by two workshops, Fiber Trails and Ready Sett Go. What a fun week immersed in textiles with fellow fiber folk. Watching a series of Arizona sunsets was a great bonus, as was being hosted by designer/author/weaver/knitter Judith Shangold!

 

Here are examples from Fiber Trails,  a surface design workshop that transformed photographs into fiber collages.

Travel Yarns - December 2016

Travel Yarns was the lecture topic suggested for an upcoming presentation to the Tucson Handweavers and  Spinners Guild. It's always fun to revisit my extensive stash of travel photos with a textile theme in mind.  Here are two photos from Cambodia followed by  two from the Xinjiang region of China. Many "yarns to spin" about these photos and more!

Lava Folds - October 2016

Working from a photograph of hardened lava taken by my son Peter, I began playing with the intersection of lava and cloth, hard and soft, visual and tactile.  I love this exploratory phase of artmaking!
