"I approach my baskets the way I approach my life:
with innovation, irreverence,
& a dash of humor."
I never imagined I would stumble upon my artistic passion later in life. As a child, I was encouraged to pursue a "sensible" career. To that end, I studied hard, married young, and became a 3rd grade teacher. When my husband’s job brought us to California, my life took two important turns. I partnered with a friend to open a contemporary crafts store in San Anselmo and... I discovered macramé! My love of fiber art was launched! From my first basket-making workshop in the basement of the old Academy of Sciences building in San Francisco, I was certain that basketry and three-dimensional art were my true passions.
