|About the Artist
|Thirty years ago, March 1987, a friend named Desi asked me to attend a Basket
Weaving Class with her. I went one Tuesday evening and was immediately hooked.
Since then I have completed more than 2700 baskets of various shapes and sizes. In
addition, I have instructed over 2500 students of all ages and continue to create new
designs to teach at state conventions, guild workshops, museums,
art centers, at your location, and at my home studio in Seneca, SC.
