Knotted vessel using artist dyed nylon thread, nylon cord and cotton/rayon novelty cord
Award: “Something with Something in It”
I continue to seize the true spirit of my creativity by creating one-of-a-kind contemporary baskets & sculptural vessels. Self-taught, knotting is my primary technique. Inspiration is drawn from everyday life by observing & keeping an open mind of countless possibilities. Color is a key element of my work; it motivates & satisfies a feeling or emotion & allows me to be playful, as well as challenged in expressing my individuality. As a fiber artist, the exploration of technique application, colors, textures & forms are endless; with the simplest of element, a colored thread, there is a hypnotic rhythm to my creative process in making thousands of knots & bringing life to an idea.
