My route to becoming a fiber artist began at age fifteen when I saw my first pine needle basket. I fell in love with the art form and was determined to learn it for myself. Thus began a journey that has tied my heart to my hands. I am self taught and my work is inspired by the vast array of color and texture I find in nature.

Like nature, you will always find a rhythm and pattern in my designs. I enjoy creating pieces that emulate nature. Not replicating a sight, but rather evoking an experience or emotion. My designs are never predetermined, but evolve as I weave making each basket a journey.
