Kevynne Layne can be found on most days in her Damascus, Oregon, weaving studio, Stick Shed Studio. She weaves on a Navajo-style loom as well as several models of Mirrix looms. Her studio time is split between the design process, cartoon construction, dyeing of colors, and the actual weaving itself. Kevynne often has two or more projects going at once, including experiments using techniques and colors in samplers for future projects.
Applying the skills she uses in graphic design and photography, Kevynne finds that it is the creative process that is most satisfying to her. She says that translating a concept or story into a tapestry that is both visual and weaverly is the challenge that excites her the most.
Kevynne’s blog has stories of her tapestry life and her travels, especially an interest in birds. It can be found at www.stickshedstudio.com.
Some of Kevynne’s tapestries and rugs can be seen in this gallery.
