Braiding is produced by crossing three or more strands in various zig zag ways so that the warp becomes the weft and vice versa. 

Weaving uses warp and weft as distinct and separate elements.  

Braiding can also be referred to as inter-lacing or inter-twining. 

Maurice Merleau Ponty believes that the body-subject is really two-fold.  The seer can be seen, the touché can be touched and therefore, crossing and reversing takes place al the time.  

At the same time, we are seeing and sensing. 

Merleau Ponty braids self/others/world into one thick texture.

For me, working with textile is erotic rather than analytic.

Eros rather than Logos.

I respond to materials and the sensuousness of them. 

I respond to the emotions they bring out in me.

I love making them

It is my passion.

It's a valid way to be an artist and to be a human.

Led by love and emotion and not thought.  Not so much thought.

What is seen as repetitive, obsessive, compulsive, in women’s art is in fact a necessity for those whose time comes in small squares.  

Lucy Lippard

Also, there is a symbol of renewal of life in the use of discarded materials.      L.L.
