For the past 44 years, I have been fascinated by the ancient art of basketweaving. I am particularly interested in the connection between humans and natural resources and our continual ability to combine and transform found materials into sculpture. I enjoy the repetitive rhythm of the physical act of weaving and, when I work, find a peace from the movements of my hands and materials. I am also honored, as a teacher of basketry, to pass on my knowledge and joy of weaving to my students.
