I began weaving baskets approximately 25 years ago after taking a basket class through a local adult education program. Since that time, I have been weaving almost every day. I have taught myself how to do more complicated weaves by reading and experimenting. I find my ideas for weaving by seeing a place where I could use a basket and designing one to meet the need. I also see pieces of different baskets and picture them together in different styles. I enjoy weaving near the water where I can wet my materials and enjoy the outdoors.
