My loom is on my porch, secluded and enclosed, overlooking my beloved lake in the Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York.  Trees.  Lake. Mountains.  Can I capture them in my weaving?  Yes. Many people enjoy doing that.

I’m a musician.  Rhythm.  Harmony. Dissonance.  You can find them in my textiles.

People call me an artist, but I’m really a scientist in disguise.  I may hide some math or physics in my design. Then I discover that the finished textile emerges with an existence and meaning of its own.  People respond to my textiles and then they figure out uses for them.

 

As a mathematician and physicist, I see abstract mathematical concepts, crystals, and the stars.

As a musician playing the recorder, I hear the flow of music.

As one who loves nature, I see the waves on the lake, the clouds, the mountains.

And as a weaver, I create my textiles.

They all flow together.  I find no boundaries between art and science, between math and music, between the abstract and the concrete.

We love hearing from our community!
