WOVEN TEXTILES and FENG SHUI While in Ecuador a few years ago I attended a weaving workshop where I tapped into a stream of creative expression I never knew I possessed. In both Canada and France I have since found an appreciative audience for my work some of which can also be found in New York, Australia and the UK .
I continue to create scarves and throws using fine luxury yarns from Ecuador, Peru, Spain and elsewhere.
My love for weaving has an added plus: what I create can be incorporated as complements to feng shui for both the home and fashion.
Photos of my work and the friends wearing them can be seen here: scarves+shawls or throws+cushions.
One of my firsts
I have fans all over the world!
Bruno in Ecuador is a handsome Siamese cat with electric blue eyes. When introduced to my beige alpaca throw, he immediately rolled around on it rubbing his chin on the knots, stretching out to reach and bring the yarns closer to him. He obviously loved my work!
Olivia is a delicate beauty whose home was in Canada. Upon seeing my pink+blue throw, she abandoned her favoured spot to leap onto it, immediately settling into the fluff, bows and knots of this soft creation. Her attitude was: but of course this is mine!
Cats love soft cuddly textures and I agree with them!
