“I created this design by making some simple forms such as ellipses and stripes. I put the designs in those forms in black and white. This weaving reminded me of a story that I read, called “The White Lady.” It was about a white bat a man befriended, that came flying into his house every evening to visit him.” -Rachel Brown
