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.



Hidden away in remote canyons and caves, our ancient Native Americans drew and carved on the walls. Some archeologists believe that these figures and symbols were part of magic rituals, having to do with hunting and surviving, long before the Europeans came on the scene. All we know for sure is that they are strong art figures and were very important to early tribal peoples.

Acrylic paint, beads, and handwoven fabrics of cotton, wool, leather strips, and Lurex form the materials. Rusty bottle caps painted with acrylic medium look almost like leather, and form the borders of this being’s shield. The background resembles the sand cliffs of the Southwest.
