Working with master weavers in this country and Japan, an art education at Cranbrook Academy of Art, and an informal education in creative problem solving through making and installing large scale public artwork (in collaboration with  Andrea  Wasserman) across the country, this work fuels my life.

 

In the 2015 public art project, From the River, To the River (funded by an NEA Our Town grant), Evie Lovett, Andrea Wasserman and I began considering the Connecticut River and its relationship to the Brattleboro community. Ask the River was formed in 2018 to expand this work to river-themed community art-making and permanent kinetic art installations.

 

In short:

vocation: ikat weaver, public art

avocation: hand work
