Artist Statement:

I enjoy pushing the boundaries and exploring new approaches to tapestry weaving. Sometimes my tapestry designs are inspired by the materials I have on hand. A discarded piece of wool felt dictated the direction for this tapestry. Without altering the irregularly shaped piece, the design flowed into the wool. Needle felting bits of roving into the tapestry softened the rectangular edges of the tapestry. Adding embroidery and beadwork helped complete this tapestry. The transformation of materials in this piece represents the changing landscape along the middle Tennessee Highland Rim.
