About the Author
"If you have ever appreciated a work of art, please read The Nature of Things by Tommye McClure Scanlin. Scanlin, a skilled tapestry weaver, is an equally skilled writer. In writing about her personal journey to art, she manages to capture the universal journey-the highs, the lows, and the intimacy of all who create things, no matter what the medium."
-Nancy Peacock, The Life and Times of Persimmon Wilson
"Tommye McClure Scanlin invites us into her artist's life-her walks in the woods, her doubts and decisions, the colors and threads of her days. This is a book to savor-and return to again and again."
-Carol Polsgrove, It Wasn't Pretty, Folks, But Didn't We Have Fun: Esquire in the Sixties
"What a welcoming and generous book-every essay a gentle invitation to walk in Tommy's tapestry footsteps, to see the world with her discerning weaver's eye and share how, with warp, weft, words and images, she twines her life and beliefs with the natural world she loves so well. It leaves me feeling hopeful and freshly energetic as I tread my own path."
-Sarah C. Swett, author and artist
"Tommye McClure Scanlin is a consummate and accomplished artist; The Nature of Things demonstrates how she has finely crafted and continues to craft her well-lived life as an artist and teacher."
-Virginia Gardner Troy, Ph.D., Professor of Art History, Berry College
