I use fiber to interpret the natural world around us.

My early memories are of our farm in Minnesota. I grew up being surrounded by our crop growing grid. It was comforting to live among these repeating square and rectangular shapes, but I also loved the way the grid was interrupted to make way for rivers, boulders and trees.

Traveling in other parts of the country have shown me many jewels of nature; some vast in scope, and others are small vignettes of color and texture. The need to travel, explore, and absorb the textures and a shape of the land is important to my inner peace and creative inspiration.
