Artist Statement

We are a collaboration of two artist/weavers in the creation of hand-woven wool rugs.  McCrystle is a painter/printmaker and Melissa is a weaver.  Many threads influence our thinking and work.  First and foremost is simply following the news, its influence on politics, social and cultural issues in the society.  Our work observes society as a whole; questions about the future of the individual, the society, and the garden earth we share.


McCrystle Wood was a Fine Arts Professor and Associate Dean at the University of Cincinnati School of Design Art Architecture and Planning.  Melissa Lusk has a background in music and is an editor for Barenreiter Music Publishing in Germany.  We have been working together for the last 2 years in the creation of hand woven rugs.
