Weaving small format … happened through circumstance … my husband and I make regular trips in a small camper to our mountain property in southern New Mexico. … The loom had to … fit in with everything else. … When I found the courage to enter my first exhibit … all works had to be 4" x 6"…
The words of one person [during an artists’ reception] … really helped dissolve any doubts I had about weaving “small” landscapes. She [said] I had taken a very large subject and distilled it down to its essence, accurately depicting its grandeur, yet creating an intimacy that drew the viewer in.
