ARTIST STATEMENT (English / Espanol)

Tapestries are hanging, multicolored, woven histories. In Tapiz, I am weaving the faces of 125th street together to represent a merging of past, present, and future. People from diverse backgrounds are converging in Harlem, which will generate a new cultural and economic renaissance.
