I graduated from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 1989, the same year I was included in the Lausanne Biennale. Continuing to develop my work, I maintain a strong exhibit record both nationally and internationally. My work has expanded to large scale public art projects, many in collaboration with Andrea Wasserman, including permanent installations at the Philadelphia International Airport, the Florida College of Medicine and the Dana Farbor Institute. In the 1990’s, I was part of a team that successfully revived the Shelburne Craft School while becoming the Executive Director. More recently I worked closely with National Park officials to develop and implement an Artist Residency Program at Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park that is now seen as a model for national parks across the country. My art work extends the long tradition of textiles and emanates out of the rhythms at the very essence of the process of weaving. At the core of these rhythms is a deep connection to nature. The strength of my work lies in making visible that connection, an essential consciousness in the world today.
