“Designing my own pieces for the last few years has opened up a new world to me not only through the design process but also in experiencing fulfillment, meditation, satisfaction and yes, even frustration. Coiling with pine needles has allowed me to expand my experiences with color and other materials more than with other mediums. I find that coiling with pine needles and native grasses has become my obsession for the last few years and I’m finding it very rewarding and challenging to design pieces with these natural materials.
“Contemporary basketry as my art form is always changing and demanding more of my mind, heart, experience and expression.”
