I am a fiber artist and textile designer who utilizes thousand-year-old fiber techniques to create pieces that have a contemporary design and function.
Textiles are deeply rooted in our relationship to the environment. Every culture has utilized some sort of fibrous material for decorative art or functional art: woven and beaded ceremonial garments, paper making, quilt-making, furniture upholstery, 1960’s macrame, and more. As human beings, we have deeply rooted connections and memories with fiber.
My goal is to continue these traditions by creating functional pieces in a sustainable way. Pieces people can interact with and enjoy in a modern setting.
When I’m not planning out a new colorway or pattern series, you’ll probably find me backpacking in a national park. Or sailing. Or listening to Neil Young and Joni Mitchell on vinyl. Or cooking up something from a Moosewood Cookbook.
