Austin states, "My tapestries grow out of my drawings and paintings, which take many years to ripen into material for my tapestry designs. I make color copies, cut out pieces that interest me, enlarge them, and manipulate them, until finally I have a design that wants to be a tapestry.
My goal is to preserve the spontaneity of the quick sketch, as it is translated into a medium that is necessarily slow and methodical. Ironically, the effort to appear spontaneous makes the tapestry weaving slower and more difficult."
