I am stunned and diehgetld to discover your portraits. I do want to know more. When my career in tapestry began thirty years ago, I use needle point to create portraits. I then became a tapestry weaver and thrived in guilds, and American Tapestry Alliance. I have one more wish and that is to try the method you use for portraiture. Is there a book or lessons I could purchase to get the benefit of your experience? I have aged over 80 now and weaving on a vertical tapestry loom is too taxing. I want to learn the technique(S) you use for my last years. Can you give me some pointers about the linen and threads you use and the methods for making the pictures so lifelike? An admirer!!!
