I am a fiber artist who uses the ancient techniques of wicker, plaiting, coiling, and twining to make things. My most recent body of work is bright and colorful, reflecting a sensual zest for life with serenity and balance. People who see this work will sense what I call my inner gold. I began to sense the magic and wonder of making things by watching my namesake Danish grandmother Tressa crochet when I was a child. I have made a good life and earned a living as an artist and a teacher of basketmaking. Inspired by my grandmother and artists like Olga de Amaral, Judy Onofrio, and Louise Bourgeois, my life work embodies what it feels like and means to be a human, dancing through life. I weave love into everything I make.
