The Money Weavings + Mixed Media 

Adding unusual materials to my work allows me to express my observations more fully, at times, than simply weaving with yarn  Informed by life and by nature, my work is impulsed by my muses, whom I perceive as the Goddesses who inhabit other realms. Visiting this one, they whisper to me, planting the seeds that ignite my creativity. 

Paper, vintage maps, plastic bags, currency, and other surprise materials find new purposes in my woven art works. Collected objects become important visual and textural components. Call it upcycling if you will. My purpose is more about the aesthetic of the material and the message it delivers. Upcycling, recycling, repurposing – the currently trendy buzz words – are fringe benefits. Non-traditional materials have been signature components in my art weaving throughout my 33-year career. Artworks featured are one-of-a-kind, originals. They may be purchased through my Etsy Shop: PamelaPalmaDesigns (no spaces)  http://www.etsy.com/shop/PamelaPalmaDesigns    Free Shipping!
