Are you inspired to develop a deep connection to the art of basketry and the abundant plant materials in our natural landscape?

About Me

Going out into the forests and fields, harvesting materials from nature, and sitting down in the sun to weave a basket is  my idea of a perfect day! I am an artist and educator based in the Hudson Valley of New York and my passion is to create art    that is inspired by nature. I also teach nature-based art workshops on basketry and plant dyes, where I create an environment in which individuals can explore self-expression while learning how to identify, use, and appreciate locally available natural materials.
