I am a native Tulsa Fiber Artist and Jewelry designer. I earned my BFA from the University of Tulsa where I studied fine art photography and painting. I have been working with different mediums within the fiber arts since I was child and my mother bought me my first latch hooking kit. From that moment on I was “hooked” and have fallen even more in love with this art form. I first began loom weaving shortly after my first child was born in 2012. At first my focus was on weaving small wall hangings and dream catchers for friends and family, but then began to transition to more mixed media work and started to explore working with fiber and polymer clay. Working with these two mediums together is what inspired me to start designing jewelry and also allowed for more experimentation with my weaving. I would say my style of weaving is definitely more intuitive in nature and tends to become a practice in meditation and stillness that I find to be much needed. I believe that through this weaving process I am able to express and release underlying feelings and emotions hidden beneath the surface. Weaving has truly helped me grow as an artist and has given me an authentic voice in this world!
