I started weaving as a child in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and have pursued fiber arts as my full-time profession for more than two decades. For many years I sold my handwoven fashion accessories at juried craft shows, including ACC shows and retail craft shows in the northeast and mid-Atlantic.
I attended art school at Syracuse University and received an undergraduate degree in Anthropology from Wellesley College. This has fueled my interest in ethnic textiles and processes and has resulted in the privilege of working with and supporting contemporary weavers in Ghana and Guatemala.
Teaching in a variety of contexts has become an important part of my weaving life. In addition to working with adult learners throughout in many parts of the country and children in local schools, I teach weaving at Syracuse University. My students of all ages continue to energize and educate me.
