ARTIST STATEMENT

“I have a deep connection with the natural world around me, field, forest, and wetland and I try to give voice to that connection in my work.

My creative focus is on the woven form incorporating local indigenous materials such as black ash, maple, willow, birch bark, and cedar bark, as well as other plant fibres both woody and herbaceous.

My creative process begins with a harvest principal that embraces respect for the land and attention to sustainability.

I combine the traditional with the innovative techniques in weaving to express a contemporary language in my work.”
