Artist Statement:“Landscape recalls you into a mindful mode of stillness, solitude, and silence where you can truly receive time.” - John O’Donohue
When I was young I was taught how to be at home in the surrounding landscape. I could go outside to the wilderness or just in my backyard and feel connected to the land. I found solitude in the open spaces of landscapes. It was with the land that I could quiet the voices of my life, both internal and external. The process of weaving is solitary; it draws me inward into a reflective meditative space that I once only found in nature. The strands of weaving hold space together and form a relationship that creates whole cloth. Weaving is a metaphor of relationships we have with each other and with land.
