My Inspiration

 

 

My inspiration for creating fiber arts comes from a lifetime of photographing natural and cultural scenes, and my admiration for works of art created by villagers around the world.  The natural surroundings, cultural significance, and available materials provide inspiration for their designs.  Similarly their art and the natural and cultural world it depicts have inspired my photography and my fiber art. 
In a Chinese Tibetan village, women dress in highly embellished and colorful silk brocade, layer upon layer, to provide necessary warmth.  With no regard for matching colors, the outcome is a brilliant celebration of life that stands out against the high mountain landscape. 

Their horses are similarly adorned.
