Artist Statement:

My artistic life is centered around sharing my love of basket weaving and techniques I’ve been so fortunate to learn from master weavers I’ve studied with. My mission is to keep alive this endangered species of art form by teaching and bringing people together to weave baskets and create community.

I first learned to weave baskets from Consuelo Underwood, a Textile Art professor at San Jose State University, now retired. She’s shown her work at the Smithsonian and has been on the PBS series Craft in America for her wall weavings on Indigenous rights and Mexican border control. I was fortunate enough to live in Vancouver, British Colombia for 2 years where I learned cedar weaving from Todd Giihlgiiaa Devries, First Nations Haida cedar weaver. Vancouver has great city-funded art programs. One was called the Urban Weavers where we gathered natural materials 1-2x a week and made baskets either from cedar bark or from local invasive species such as blackberry and ivy, from Stanley Park. Sharon Kallis, another great artist/ activist based in Vancouver taught us all how to glean natural fibers, prepare them and weave.

I’ve been an Art Instructor for over 10 years for the Community School of Music and Art (CSMA) based in Mountain View, California.
