I design and create weavings and sculpture from sustainable, natural materials including willows, tamarisk, juniper, stone, antlers and a variety of other natural materials. Most of the willows and tamarisk are collected in the Gunnison River Drainage of Western Colorado and I my cuttings promote regrowth to insure my work is "eco-friendly." I hand-pick all of these elements for distinct texture and color so that each piece is unique. Most of my work has a southwest flavor and many designs hint of ancient, indigenous. cultures. The bulk of these designs can be displayed indoors or out.
To create art inspired by nature that will inspire others to realize the inherent beauty in wild places. I also attempt to integrate the elements of soil, stone and vegetation that create the unequaled landscapes found in wilderness. Everything I design is a tribute to Mother Earth and the rich, irreplaceable biodiversity of this planet
