I consider myself to be a craftsman as well as an artist. I create pieces that have both the practical function of providing warmth to the wearer, as well as the aesthetic value of enhancing the beauty of everyday life. My influences were my mother, an avid knitter, and Jack Lenor Larsen, whose wonderful fabrics covered the furniture in my childhood home.
I focus on the multi-harness weaving technique called shadow weave. I employ bamboo yarn for its durability, its crisp visual effect, and its silky-soft hand.
