My work combines the immediate and the ancient. I apply post-modern materials to the centuries-old processes of basketry and weaving. As a weaver and basket maker, I follow the path of a thousand generations of artists from around the world. As a contemporary artist, I’m concerned with how our plastic trash impacts the environment.
Both physically and conceptually, my materials are creations of the modern age. Physically, they are by-products of industrialization.
Conceptually, the notions of disposability and one-time-use are purely modern inventions. I hope to help raise the awareness that leads to reducing our production of trash.
