“The largest weaving width that I have on my loom is 36 inches, so I can only make a piece in a particular size, but I think there’s a really important relationship between the patterning of the textile and the total size of the painting. I’m not interested in making huge works because I think it loses the intimacy, and the pattern of the textile starts to become more of an allover texture. Whereas when it’s smaller, it reads more as a graphic mark or a line. I want the patterns to be repeating just enough and then to cut it off. To suggest repetition but not to be redundant.”
