Artist Statement

When I engage in fiber arts I am creating something, but I’m also participating in historic traditions thousands of years old.  I’m not only making art for my own and future generations, I am embodying the work of my ancestors.

Folklore is passed mouth to mouth.  Folk art is passed hand to hand.  Pine needle and grass coiling into baskets has been in existence since the time of man.  My extensive study with the Gullah Geechee in the barrier islands off the Georgia Coast, and a master coiler North in the barrier islands of Virginia imbue the work with a deep tradition yet the forms move outside tradition to embrace a new definition of basketry and vessels, stretching the traditional forms and materials to embrace contemporary meanings.

Found items… pieces from the forest and desert floor, and the flowing current and eddies of the rivers influence the work as they have influenced my life…past present, and future evidenced in all.
