My work is an exploration of the relation between the whimsical and the mysterious. Drawing inspiration from nature and fantasy I combine natural materials and found objects to create the inhabitants of my imagined world.

I am drawn to weaving because of the fiber, color, and structure. To create a piece of fabric from a single strand of yarn which becomes useful and artistic is gratifying. There are many steps in the weaving process and I enjoy using all the equipment and tools which make the process fun and exciting.

I find great inspiration in vintage designs and techniques; the colors in nature are also a special inspiration. I hope the joy I find in my work is passed on to all who admire and purchase it.

My light sculptures are a means to draw attention to forms and feelings about nature, influenced by my vision. The manipulation of the reeds in combination with applying the paper are a form of meditation. I like to think that the result has a certain presence, quiet or bold, and in some cases, humorous.

Celebrations give us the opportunity to experience a sense of otherness, a distancing from the everyday. My desire is to create garments embodying a bit of that magic, perhaps even bringing it to life. In creating a line of clothing that is celebratory, I hope to offer the option of wearing one’s inner beauty on the outside.

Craft activity involving sustained hand-eye coordination creates a focused, meditative mindset. Thus, each hat that I make is a meditative session, during which I send out a call for help for children so that they may receive a good education, blossom and flourish. While each hat is made, one hat at a time, one stitch at a time, my mind is calm, my hands are busy, and I call out for universal energy to help children. They are our future and we need to do all we can to make the world a better place for them.
