Nanoose Bay, British Columbia, Canada
Flooded by natural light from windows on three sides, my studio is a large
open space with my 8-foot wooden Shannock loom in the center. Sliding glass doors
open onto a private deck, and the wingback chair beckons when I need to take a
break from weaving. As I sit at my loom, my eye often strays from the tapestry
I’m working to the rich feast of yarn colors, the montage of photos and
postcards of historical and contemporary artwork pinned up on the walls, and the
eclectic collection of toys, treasures found on my travels, and stones, bones,
and feathers brought home in my pockets. I live in the country, and my sense of
visual joy is also fed by the vista of northwest forest spread out before me.
My studio is a place of work, of inspiration, and of peace.
