Story-telling at the Paw Paw Tree

This textile multi-media art project combines weaving, homemade beads made from paw-paw seeds, and a paper mache mask that call a “sin” mask (it is made from colorful shiny foil chocolate wrappers).

This piece took a long time to create. My grandpa Davis was always PawPaw to me….and our family had many stories….some of them sad statements on a rough life…..about my PawPaw.

This closeup shows a woman figure and the “spirit” of the tree up close. Most of the piece was woven on a hand-built peg loom from recycled material or yarn left over from other projects.
