I have always been interested in fibers and have done knitting, crochet and sewing most of my life. I made my first basket over 20 years ago.
I weave with reed, ash, cedar, paper and metal. The end products may be utilitarian (a market basket), decorative disguised as utilitarian (a paper basket) or purely decorative. I have resisted specializing in only one field of basketry since I enjoy exploring different materials, techniques and the play between utility and decoration.
I joined WomanCraft as a member in 2015.
