Fiber Art With a Narrative
What is Broken Elms?
Welcome to the world of Broken Elms. My fiber art is crafted not only with fine materials and artistry born from years of experience in various textile crafts, but also with story. Each new image is linked together with the thread of narrative. Every piece, a new window into the mountain town of Pinnacle, a small hamlet best known for the once admired estate of Towering Elms.
Today Towering Elms is now in disrepair and referred to around town by the epithet, Broken Elms. Once the pulsing center of a great family, today it is the home of the forlorn Madam Bledsoe.
The tragic beauty of her world and life is captured in my fiber art. A document of small marvels, quiet lives and the hidden struggles all around us. For Madam it is a record of her private struggles.
Overall my work is a meditation on the beauty of the moment, the brevity and despair of life and the flimsy nature of reality. I also aim my work to point toward the long difficult path of healing. Will you join me?
