Tapestry is a traditional medium that after 30 years of experience has drawn me to explore the vision of applying it into different ways. My formal training of Design, Photography and Textiles in Mexico,my country of origin, gave me firm basis to understand the traditional structures of fibre and weaving. The influence I experienced while being introduced to the Eastern European Polish textile art and now my immersion into a diverse culture such as Canada has widened my spectrum of possibilities to explore with non-conventional materials. My knowledge in photography has been a very important support and tool for creating my textile art. Through the lens I capture images of nature such as textures, reflections, surfaces. These images are then transformed into fibre language with natural and synthetic fibres. Once the images are interpreted through a textile form, they become my second skin. Nature and texture as my great inspiration; Weaving as a metaphor of fertility, connection, tissue, skin. All as a fractal of nature...they all connect us all into this ever-changing world.
