Welcome to my website!
I'm a weaver, writer, world traveler, and generally adventurous person. Among other projects, I'm currently writing a book about the creative process in craft, scheduled to be published by Schiffer Publishing in 2016.
In this website, I have shared some of my many interests. If you are curious about anything, drop me a line at

Lieven came over last week to do the “official” photo shoot for my show entries, and I got the final shots a few days later. They’re beautiful!
Here are the finished cat placemats (I completed them late so I shot them myself):
Cat placemats – “The Tao of Cats” – dark side
Cat placemat – “The Tao of Cats” – light side
And here are the two phoenixes, both full photos and detail shots. I can tell them apart easily, but then, mothers always know their offspring, right? I think it would be hard for most people to distinguish the two, so I’ve titled them “Goodbye, Ma (v.1)” and “Goodbye, Ma (v.2)” It occurred to me after I sent in my show entries that using software terminology for numbering pieces is about the least sexy possibility out there, but oh well. Henceforth I shall name them something sexier, like “Tweedledee” and “Tweedledum”.
“Goodbye, Ma #1”
“Goodbye, Ma #1”, detail shot
Handwoven phoenix #2 – “Goodbye, Ma #2”

I also decided to enter the musk ox scarf and the sea-turtle scarf, and the photos are so lovely I have to share:
