After many years of teaching and advising students on campuses including Stanford and the Universities of Wisconsin and California, budget cuts left me without a classroom. Finally, I could focus full time on my inherent artistic interests – dyeing and weaving yarn. Today I design and weave one-of-a-kind textiles using traditional looms, respecting and preserving an ancient form of art. I have three looms in my home studio and use only natural fibers: cotton, silk, tencel (fiber made from wood), bamboo, soy and linen. I have been teaching weaving since early 2009 and now offer two classes at the University of California, Davis. My goal is to teach as many people as possible the joys of weaving!
