I am a fiber artist with deep basketry roots. I love to explore natural, man-made and unexpected materials. I like the challenge of figuring out how I can use the materials and techniques to accomplish the ideas I have in my head. Drawing my ideas is not something I do. This feels like it lacks flexibility for my process. If anything, I am more likely to write down ideas, or take a photograph. I find myself wondering what would happen if I do ___? Or how will I ever get knots around such an unusual shape? I like taking a familiar, almost humble, tool like a vegetable brush and changing it into an art object. It is meditative almost comforting to tie knot after knot over a brush handle. I am glad I have a steady supply of brushes.
