Exhibiting Member Since 1996
I took my first weaving class at the Arts and Crafts Association (now the Sawtooth School) in Winston-Salem, NC almost twenty-five years ago, as a newcomer to the community. My instructor was inspiring, and I found new friends as intrigued as I with the process. After several years of classes, workshops, experimentation, and an invaluable apprenticeship, I narrowed my focus in weaving to the fabric creation a mixture of fibers and textures. My hand-woven throws are made unique by the myriad of fibers used, including lofty mohair, soft Persian wool, cotton silk, linen, and rayon. Rayon ribbons add sheen, and Italian eyelash adds texture. Coordinating pillows are often piped in raw silk. I also design wraps and scarves in the same fabrics.
