Artist Statement

I am basically a self-taught weaver with the help of weaving friends. I use 4 harness Leclerc looms and have 3 plus a small Macomber. I always had an urge to do handcrafts and went from one to another until I hit upon weaving and have been doing so since 1989. I usually do traditional Acadian Style weaving but have ventured to more contemporary styles.

Biography

My craft of spinning and weaving first grew out of getting back to basics and gardening. In my garden I grow brown, green, or white cotton for spinning and weaving. I learned to weave in 1989 and work mostly with cotton, wool and rayon. I am basically self taught with the help of weaving friends and workshops. I want to continue the tradition of my family and heritage of weaving.
