About Me

I have been fascinated by textiles my entire life. Learning to weave in 1994 opened avenues for me to create my own fabrics, exploring color and its interaction with structure. My work has been shown in galleries in the Southeast, with pieces in private collections across the U.S. and in several foreign countries. Teaching is one more way in which I can share my passion for weaving. I teach weaving classes to beginners and to weavers of all levels.

Recently I've explored additional dimensions in weaving, playing with doubleweave pick-up and multiple layers. Kay Secamachi's work with 4-6 layers has led me to weaving structural pieces that exceed the two dimensions we usually think of when we consider weaving. The next step will be to incorporate doubleweave pick-up and boxes into a single piece.
