Waitsburg, WA, Select One
I've always worked as an artist, then fiber artist. Ultimately I fell in love with leather work and making wearable art.
Hand crafted leather work, bead embroidery, rustic jewelry, weaving, original designs and my own patterns are my passions. Native American influence and primitive technology often guide my art and the themes of motifs I use on bags, pouches, or mojos.
Skills and Techniques
Bead work including embroidery, off loom weaving such as Peyote stitch, and stringing; leather work done by hand; weaving with fibers; and painting or burning designs on leather are my current commercial passions. All my life I have painted, drawn, illustrated, loved pointillism, quill pen work, and done gallery showing.
I've been bit by many bugs: knitting, crochet, weaving, sewing of all types both by hand and machines. I love making masks, rattles, lodge shields, and dancing sticks.
