Floating Wall Mural



Embassy Travels
I was awarded a SWAIA Discovery Fellowship in 2010. The fellowship supported my dream journey to visit Peru to collaborate with Peruvian weavers and engage in a cultural weaving exchange.

This project enabled me to travel and work together with Peruvian weavers. I participated in a Tinkuy de Tejedores Gathering (A Gathering of Weavers). The purpose of the gathering was to broaden and deepen an understanding between indigenous weavers and forge connections among people who are passionate about textiles.

I then traveled to Guatemala and Bolivia to conduct workshops and artist interchanges with local weavers, and to collaborate in a combined Navajo and Backstrap style tapestry that was exhibit in both countries.
