In my craft I seek the same things I do in my own life, a balance between design (mind), color (spirit), and texture (body).  Inspiration begins with dreams, meditation, and evening walks. This spiritual philosophy is woven into beautiful shawls, scarves, jackets, tops, and accessories.

The majority of my designs are limited or one-of-a-kind. Natural fibers are combined creating cotton, bamboo, tencel, and wool blends.   Fabrics are woven for easy care and a soft touch.

Color and weave are combined to produce variation in the shading of the fabric. I describe my color combinations as very intuitive.  I rarely keep records, preferring to go with an inner creative flow. Earth and sky tones are the basis for most of my work.
