Adding colorful baskets to the world!

I had an amazing childhood in a little town called Coco Solo on the banks of the Panama Canal. We played in the ocean, tried to make sea urchins our pets, and turned the mangrove swamps into our own jungle gyms. Surround by all this natural beauty, I was inspired to go to college for Horticulture. After graduating from college in the frozen tundra of Colorado, I return back to my tropical home and decided to become an artist! Sloths, frogs, toucans and other local jungle animals became the subjects of my silk screened t-shirts. and stain glass creations. Then.....I decided to start substitute teaching for some reason! When the treaty was signed to return the Canal to Panama, my husband retired and we moved to Florida where I started teaching fulltime and discovered a new art medium, the river rock. I spent several years painting lifelike animals on rocks and selling them at all the local art shows. Finally, my art passion was put on the back burner as teaching second grade took over my life! The Pandemic made me decide that I was ready to take early retirement and spend more time with my husband. Needing something to do during the lockdown, I discovered how to make baskets by wrapping fabric around rope and turning it into an amazing basket! I was hooked. Each one is unique and I seem to be drawn to the colors of the ocean when I make most of them. Retirement is pretty awesome!
