Analise and I turned in a proposal to make large woven rocks like these for Chalk the Block 2014 in El Paso. I am so grateful to have a friend and collaborator in my life. It is very special.

kitten-humyn said: Hi! Hope it is okay that I am messaging you. I live in DFW and I was wondering if you knew of any places/resources for someone with no weaving experience to learn. I really enjoy your work that you post on here!

Hey there!

Oil and Cotton is a great place to learn to weave as well as the White Rock Weavers. Hope you find the perfect place.

"..it was a time when i first realized the part the artist can take in indicating the traumas of a time and initiating a healing process, by that i mean i saw the relationship between the chaos i experienced and the process of sculpture. chaos can have a healing character if it is coupled with the idea of open movement to channel the warm of chaos energy into order or form."
