About This Artist
I use weaving and sculpture techniques to create original, one-of-a-kind works. Once, my days were filled with specifications and numbers as I pursued an engineering career, but my daydreams were of nature and forms of beauty. I saw a new path; the artist behind the desk was freed.
I am inspired by nature, my world travels and almost everything. I never know from where or when the inspiration will come, I'm just glad it does. Reed and natural elements fascinate me. The interplay between left and right brain stimulates my creative process and leads my work in new directions.
Q&A With This Artist
A: I use weaving and sculpture techniques to create original works.
A: Basket weaving as a functional and sculptural art form has enriched my life. My world travels and the memories of those different cultures that I have experienced have inspired my work, colored my imagination and resulted in patterns and forms that are original and unique. I only make one, and I find the creative process incredibly stimulating.
A: I learned to sew when I was very young and the concentration required to motivate a treadle sewing machine, avoid my fingers and create became an inspiring lesson and an excellent way to corral my thoughts and harness my energy. Basket weaving is similar in thought, process and manipulation of tools and materials. It was second nature, a remembered and familiar muscle motion, a calming respite.
A: I have always been enthralled by materials, natural elements and building. The process of starting with a flat element whether it be reed or fabric, and with thoughtful, repetitive motion turning it into an object with void, shape and presence has been a lifelong fascination. My world travels and the memories of those different cultures that I have experienced have inspired my work, colored my imagination and resulted in patterns and forms that are original and unique. I believe everyone deserves an original. I only make one.
A: Though it may seem de rigueur, my husband is my most thoughtful critic, staunch supporter and best stick hunter. He is the reason I am able to pursue my dream.
