I consider myself a craftsman as well as an artist. I create pieces that have both function and beauty and enhance everyday life. My inspirations were my mother, an avid knitter who loved to work in beautiful yarns, and Jack Lenor Larsen, whose wonderful fabrics covered the furniture in my childhood home.
I focus on the weaving techniques of multi-harness shadow weave color and two-harness color and weave effect. In addition to my line of luxurious scarves and shawls woven of rayon chenille and ribbon or “flag” yarns, I have most recently developed a new line using 100% bamboo fiber, sometimes mixed with recycled sari silks/banana fiber. The bamboo fiber scarves are sculptural in pattern, and elegant to both hand and eye.
