I'm a textile artist and a writer, living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area.
While primarily a weaver, I use a wide variety of textile processes, such as dyeing, surface design, and couture sewing, to create my work. I believe that my creative strength is drawn from the spaces “in between”: between techniques, between media, and, most of all, between people. My art is not just a physical object: it is a conversation between me and you.
When not in the studio, I'm usually writing. My book Master Your Craft: Strategies for Designing, Making, and Selling Artisan Work is scheduled to be released by Schiffer Publishing in 2016. I've written many magazine articles, and have been blogging since 2002.
