I love to work with textiles, threads, fabric, paper and fibers. Using a variety of materials including muslin, linen, embroidery thread, rope, hemp and other soft materials, I like to weave, sew, paint and stitch pieces that reflect some aspect of the world around us. My sculptural baskets often include asymmetry, whimsy, bumpiness, curves and humor. I’m intrigued by when and where baskets become sculpture and vice versa. The vessels are made with a variety of materials including waxed linen, leather, paint, cedar, paper and wire. I tend to use natural looking and feeling materials.
