Tricia Goldberg Tapestry Weaving

I have been designing, weaving, and exhibiting tapestries for over twenty-five years. My tapestries are in numerous collections and have been featured in various publications.

One of my goals is to maintain a freshness and liveliness in my weavings. I work in color before finalizing a design, but I weave from a black and white "cartoon" behind the loom. This allows room for play and experimentation.
