About the Artist
In my work I strive to expand the possibilities of loom-based weaving. My artistic journey has been to move away from controlled, predetermined designs to spontaneous, free form weaving. I have developed my own approach to mixed media weaving by combining yarn, beads and wire to produce tapestries and woven sculptures. The wire allows the work to be shaped and free-standing; the beads are transparent, allowing light to glow through. Textures and light are blended into organic shapes that suggest features of the natural world. I enjoy the challenge of utilizing one of the world's oldest craft forms while exploring new directions.
I live in San Diego, California
