About

weaving a life with fiber and color

My love of color and texture has taken me on a journey from being a glass artist to the fiber arts world. For the last 15 years I have explored spinning, dyeing and weaving. I am now creating fine handwovens, handspun and hand dyed yarns, in my home studio in the beautiful hills of southwestern Wisconsin.
Weaving brings an aspect of functionality to art that I enjoy.
It is hard to describe the wonder of being at the loom and watching your fabric grow with each throw of the shuttle. Fiber is a wonderfully tactile medium and the rhythm of weaving is very meditative. I am very drawn to the interplay of pattern and texture in weaving. Then throw in colors and how they are affected by each other in the weave....It will take me a lifetime to learn all there is to learn about weaving.
Every now and then I go back to my glass roots, and fire up the torch to create glass beads and buttons. Two such different mediums continue to feed my creative soul. If I couldn't be creating something with my hands my life would be incomplete.
Starting my shop on etsy, and creating my blog, both happened a bit by accident. While putt-sing around on the computer and checking these sites out, I found them so easy and visually appealing that before I knew it...whamo alacazam; I had an etsy shop and a blog to help promote my business. Both have been a blessing in renewing my interest in photography (like I need more interests!) , teaching me tons about the internet world and keeping my business constantly fresh and exciting for me.
