Creating vessels is exhilarating for me. I enjoy working with natural materials, along with the challenge of experimenting with different forms. As a graphic designer, I am faced with creatively fulfilling client needs. As a fiber artist, I am faced only with my own creativity. I am influenced by the beauty and simplicity of forms and patterns found in nature, and the organic forms in primitive and indigenous art.
