"I try to apply colors like words that shape poems, like notes that shape music" - Joan Miro
A self-taught weaver, I learned my craft in San Francisco as a young woman. Moving to Asheville, North Carolina in 1990, this is where I raised my family, setting down roots as deep as the oak trees are tall in western North Carolina. The colors and moods and shapes of the Appalachian Mountains surrounding my home are my never-ending source of inspiration: the colors of the wildflowers, and the shapes of the winter trees, the singing of the birds, and the music of the mountains.
I carry these echoes and visions into my studio and it is here that I spend my days dreaming and making the work that is brought into reality. My greatest joy is when the person who loves something I’ve created finds that piece and takes it home!
