Handwoven Cloth, Canvas & Paint
The hand-woven non-wearable garments as soft 'costumes' or regalia are sewn onto canvas on stretcher bars, and the background canvas, and sometimes the woven surfaces are painted.  This mix of contemporary acrylic painting is a new approach to woven artworks.

"Winter on the Northwest Coast"


The ancient peoples of our American and Canadian west coasts lived mainly on the waterways and on the ocean shores. This was because the forests were so dense and thick that even skilled hunters were often unable to penetrate, even when winter covered the evergreens.

My painted trees look bare, however, to illustrate the cold. The costume, with its shell beads, is actually pearl cottons, woven in a shadow weave structure of red and black. Those are often the colors used by the Northwest tribes. The designs are rather geometric, too.
