“My goals are to combine natural yarns and traditional weave structures to highlight form and function in classic fabrics for unique hand towels, table linens, scarves, blankets and rugs. I believe that art can be expressed in well-crafted everyday items, no matter how utilitarian. The materials and processes involved in making objects are just as important as the finished pieces. Many techniques have evolved through the history and traditions of each craft. I practice these foundations in my development as a weaver of fine textiles.” – ACL

 

Statement

Beginning with an interest in fibers and handspinning as a young child, my skills expanded over the years to include weaving. My long-standing interest in textiles, their production, and social history has led from working in the museum field doing hands-on demonstrations at several Shaker museums in New England to academic research on historical and technical aspects of ethnographic textiles and design. In 1993, I graduated with a Masters in Science in Textiles and Related Art from the University of Rhode Island.
Several years ago, I followed my dream and became a full-time weaver. My work appeared in Early American Life Magazine’s Annual Directory of Traditional American Crafts for several years and is included in The White House Collections in Washington, D.C. Most recently it has been featured in House Beautiful and Design New England Magazines. Currently, I make and sell my work at my studio and gallery in Tiverton, RI.
