I’ve been a weaver, spinner and dyer for 35+ years. My inspiration comes, almost exclusively, from the patterns found in nature and from ethnic textiles. My work is influenced by 6 months of study at Kawashima Textile School in Kyoto, Japan. It is frequently a combination of techniques; weaving, spinning,dyeing, knitting and stitching with an emphasis on fine detail. I see my life as a journey of discovery, one small stitch at a time.
