About me

I live, work and weave in the mountains of western Montana in the Bitterroot Valley. I love to design textiles and have a business dje handwovens where I sell kits for handweavers. I achieved the COE in Handweaving, Level 1 in 2004 and would go for level two if I could just decide what weave structure to study! In 2010, I completed the Montana Arts Council's Montana Artrepreneurship Preperation Certification and have been selected to teach this program in 2011-12. In 2011, I was selected by the Montana Arts Council for induction into the Montana Circle of American Masters in Folk and Traditional Art.

I teach

Classes change each year. In 2011-12 I will be teaching Doubleweave, Beginning Weaving, and Card Weaving. I will be teaching 3 seminars at Convergence 2012 Long Beach on the business end of art, including Internet 101, Selling your art and Getting your weaving records organized.
