It would be great to meet you in person! I am at the Market at El Museo Cultural in the Railyard District of Santa Fe, New Mexico, every Saturday (8-3) and Sunday (9-4). Stop By!
Lots of new work to see here just about every week! Most weeks I weave at least a couple of new rugs... always some new colors and sizes. This season I’m starting to work with a combination of bamboo yarn and bits of silk ribbon. These pieces take more tome, so keep an eye out for new ones to appear. I love hearing from you... don’t be shy if you have a question about work you see here.

On most days, this is what I do: I make things. I design a new rug or scarf. I set up my loom to begin weaving a new piece. I spend the morning weaving fabric for a vest, while listening to a book on CD (a mystery? some history?). Sometimes I leave the loom to work with metal. Earrings require a different kind of attention. Different tools. But in the end, it's about creating work that becomes a meaningful memory for someone I probably don't even know yet.

I learned to weave on one of those square red metal looms, turning out potholders the summer of my 8th year. Then I really learned to weave while attending Northern Illinois University (Bachelor of Arts degree), and a few years later I REALLY learned to weave at the Webschule Sindelfingen (a weaving trade school in Germany).
