after a most chaotic summer i applied for the mary nohl fellowship grant. this is one of the pieces i entered. i had not planned to apply feeling i was most unprepared. i however decided to apply. we will know the results late october.
i am a fiber artist. i grew up on a dairy farm in the midwest. my grandmother introduced me to wide variety of crafts, this encouraged my imagination. as i grew older interests in the arts became my focus. throughout my years in a rural high school i escaped through using the art department and dark room every moment i could. in college i needed to find my concentration, it took a year in england to so so. i came back to where it all had begun, fabric, craft. with my fiber degree i teach adults and children how to weave. the beauty of the loom has been opened to me. i am perfecting my catalog of works; a collection of of rugs and rep weaves. i have four children and try my best to foster their creativity each day, they are my other works in progress. i feel fulfilled. there is so much more to offer in the time beyond this moment..
