About Gretchen Romey-Tanzer

My work is designed, hand woven and framed by me. I use a complex double layer woven structure with colorful fine cotton thread that gives me unlimited design opportunities. The designs come from detailed colored pencil sketches derived from direct observation and my imagination. The structure of the cloth lends itself to abstract compositions with a Modernist effect. The pieces are finished by hand sewing them to a stretched canvas to hang on the wall. The result is a sleek framed piece of handwoven textile art.
