I am a self taught artist from Northern Wisconsin. I make baskets out of natural materials that the forests around me offer. I create other art in many mediums as I am insprired by the world around me. I have been a community arts educator for more than twenty years - those experiences led me to found Your Arts Community, Inc, a community-driven, non-profit arts program. As life continues to evolve, I have closed the art center and am focusing on my personal development as an artist that creates for the sheer joy of creating. I am trying different methods and altering and playing with those that I know on an ever evolving journey!
