  "Life Weave" created in part with the help of an artist grant by the Commission of Culture and Tourism (2003-2007)

In order to create this weaving, I had to build a hand made loom, and teach myself to weave. Coming from Mexico and having visited states like Oaxaca and watching women sitting on the floor weaving with waist looms was very inspiring.

As part of my research I also created a 36 part questionnaire to help outline some of the changes in these women’s lives. To start I selected a group of 48 women in the CT area from several countries, ages, with economic, professional and social differences. I found
incredible differences between the experiences of each individual and yet incredible
similarities, many who joined us together.
