Based in the Twin Cities, Minnesota, I spent many years as an art director before reengaging the fiber arts.

I needle-weave and knot abstract physical and psychological landscapes onto aging fiber artifacts—most often fly nets
for horses and fishing nets. As I recontextualize these materials of trade into critical and aesthetic space, the transformation creates new narratives that honor the revolving intersections of past and present. Woven on nets reminiscent of those made and mended for thousands of years, the reconstructed objects act as metaphor for themes that weave each of us to another and to our histories. Their inherent characteristics encourage empathic response, offering a point of connection and shared humanity.

My work has been shown in gallery and museum exhibitions throughout the United States, including prestigious physical and published surveys representing the diversity and breadth of contemporary craft and fiber art. Recognition includes the 2019 Surface Design Award from the Surface Design Association’s International Exhibition in Print, the 2021 Award for Excellence and Innovation from the Textile Center of Minnesota, and multiple grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and Metropolitan Regional Arts Council. Residencies include the Al and Mickey Quinlan Artist Residency through the Miller Art Museum, the Open Studio Residency at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, the Digital Weaving Lab with Praxis Fiber Workshop, and a residency with the Hafnarfjörður Centre of Culture and Fine Art.
