A pen and ink self portrait of herself entitled 'Sad Clown' was transformed into a jacquard woven composition of 13 panels in total measuring 6x4 foot. The fabrics were embroidered to add detail, then stretched over frames. I really admire the offbeat nature of her work: so not what you'd expect from a weave graduate. Not sure what she is up to now, but hope she manages to keep going with the weaving as there is real potential to push this idea further.
