About me

I've has been fascinated by textiles my entire life. Learning to weave in 1994 opened avenues for me to create my own fabrics, exploring color and its interaction with structure. My work has been shown in galleries in the Southeast, with pieces in private collections across the U.S.
I draw inspiration from the life around my North Florida studio, interpreting the colors of the natural world in the ancient medium of weaving. I use traditional methods, combining time-honored patterns and structures in new and inventive ways.
Most recently I have been exploring structural elements of weaving. I have created wall hangings using doubleweave pick-up. My fabric and wire boxes are constructed on the loom, woven in four simultaneous layers. I love the mental challenge of sculpting on the loom.
Teaching is one more way in which I share my passion for weaving. I teach weaving classes to beginners and weavers of all levels.
