Handwoven with metal heddles and various yarns. Sizes vary.
Weaving with metal heddles was inspired by a visit to China, in particular Beijing with its glass skyscrapers, some looking like gigantic sculptures. They were glittering in the sky. And still there was part of the old city, buildings made of bamboo and wood. I started translating that into my modern day living pieces. When I came back driving through downtown Austin, I felt the same sense of surrounding on a much smaller scale. Even so we are miles apart, our big cities look very much the same.

I am an artist who weaves with diverse modern, quotidian materials.

I am mostly a self-taught artist who weaves with diverse modern, quotidian materials. In this process, I search to push the boundaries of the materials I am using which enables me to tell a story.
Inspiration for my work comes from current events as well as my everyday experience. Creating something which seizes the moment and transforms it through medium and connection is what I strive to do.

My work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and can be found in public and private collections.
