I am a self-taught bead artist, designer and writer who seeks to live, bead, design and write with social responsibility in mind.

Many of my designs use single-needle contemporary & traditional beadweaving stitches from around the world that have been shared between beaders across time and diverse cultures. It is that generous sharing that has made my own beadwork possible. To those beaders, who are mainly women, I say thank you. It is a joy and a privilege to weave with stitches born of that genorsity that has carried through so many cultures for hundreds of years.
