I always loved weaving. As a child I was constantly making environments out of found objects. I even spent a whole weekend wrapping my friends swing set in yarn. I then spent the next weekend, equally as happy untangling the swingset.
Other peoples trash is truly my treasure! I use upcycled materials such as bottle caps, hair rollers, and bread tabs in my work. These items are not only readily available, but also add whimsy and a larger message to my work.
Materials inspire me. Every work I make starts with a box of 'stuff' often set aside as trash by many. My quest is to make this pile of stuff into a beautiful weaving or vessel.
