LaVerne Kemp
Ribbon Ruana
Over the years my fiber works have evolved into an art form rather than simply traditional weaving. I have explored and incorporated on and off-loom weaving, batik, handmade felt, traditional American and Japanese Shibori dying techniques, photo transfer, beadwork, and quilting. Using these various techniques I create one of a kind wearable art pieces such as jackets, ponchos and shawls and scarves as well as sculptural wall pieces and dolls utilizing handwoven and other fabrics.
