Weaving/Photography: Dobree Adams

In this profile taped at her farm along the Kentucky River, artist Dobree Adams describes the age-old process she follows in creating her contemporary tapestries and rugs. At her farm, she raises a rare breed of sheep, shears their wool, and spins, dyes, and weaves their wool. Adams talks about her transition from careers in physics and computer programming to her life working on a farm, weaving and making photographs of the world in which she lives.
