The Transition form Painting to Fibers

The process begins with choosing an already fallen branch and selecting yarn from the scraps my knitting friends have given me. As I weave, I do it with intention–thinking of what I am trying to reason out.

Each weaving has a story to tell or a job to do. Just as a dream catcher is intended to catch bad dreams, my weavings have a purpose as well. It may be to convey a story or idea, but often it is to protect my thoughts from self doubt, or if intended as a gift for a friend, it maybe created as a good luck charm of sorts.

Similar to a prayer shawl, the weaving is meant to bring peace to the home it hangs in.
