I remember always wanting to be an artist as a child, but somehow I never picked up paintbrushes or pencils. I was surrounded in my home by fabrics, needles, thread, and yarn; and I gravitated toward them. I weave, knit, crochet, and make baskets; and love the interplay between textile structures and the colors and textures in the materials. I love using fiber art techniques to create my wall pieces, sculptural baskets, and jewelry. The process is as satisfying as the final product.

 

Statement

My work combines the immediate and the ancient. I apply post-modern materials to the centuries-old processes of basketry and weaving. As a weaver and basket maker, I follow the path of a thousand generations of artists from around the world. As a contemporary artist, I’m concerned with how our plastic trash impacts the environment. Both physically and conceptually, my materials are creations of the modern age. Physically, they are by-products of industrialization. Conceptually, the notions of disposability and one-time-use are purely modern inventions. I hope to help raise the awareness that leads to reducing our production of trash.

    WHAT A SHAME TO THROW AWAY ALL THOSE DELICIOUS COLORS AND SHAPES OF BOTTLE CAPS. I AM CONSTANTLY LOOKING TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT FROM THE USUAL IN ALL MY ART. I LOVE THE USE OF BOTTLE CAPS AND FIBER IN YOUR CREATION. I SIMPLY LOVE IT. I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE IT A TRY. I LOVE TO DO ALL KINDS OF ART SO I HAVE A TREASURE OF DIFFERENT MATERIALS ON HAND.

We love hearing from our community!
