I have been a Michigan resident all my life. I have been married to my husband Jeff for 40 years. We have 4 children and 5 grandchildren.
I started weaving baskets over 20 years agol I weave various kinds of baskets; practical baskets, ribbed (egg) baskets, hard wood, doll cradles, antler and Nantucket style baskets. I have even woven four life size baby cradles. I also make pine needle baskets.
A few years later, I started creating with gourds, including making instruments. I have taught others the love of weaving for almost 20 years.
My greatest challenges are when I am asked to create a special order or the repair a precious heirloom basket that had gotten broken or damaged.
