"Tapestry weaving is an ancient and honored art form. My personal goal in this medium is to work at illusion of movement, or fooling the eye regarding at what viewing distance the image actually reads clearly. My approach is to use traditional techniques and material. Experience and time has improved my success in achieving these goals."
