ARTIST STATEMENT

Lucy had her first experience with weaving as a Girl Scout using a popsicle stick loom. After a year of college, she went to Maine to live on a sheep farm, where she learned how to spin yarn, began learning to weave on a floor loom, and cared for sheep.

On returning to Oregon, she bought a loom and learned a lot more about weaving. She was a partner in The Web’sters in Ashland for the first couple of years after it opened in 1984.

She is inspired by learning new patterns, color combinations, dyeing various types of yarn for use in her weavings, and by others’ use of color and designs.
