Saturday, July 13, 2019 from 10 am – 5 pm:  I will be part of  Reawakening the Great Basin: A Native American Arts and Culture Gathering at the Nevada Museum of Art

As part of the Great Basin Native Artists (GBNA), it's an opportunity to mingle with the community and celebrate Native Art  & Culture (in all it's forms).

Super excited to announce I have been juried in for a booth at Santa Fe Indian Market this August 17th & 18th! It's always a good time to see friends and so much GREAT art!  Did I mention the food?!? I hope you can make it if you're in the area.



Here's a piece from my Sonoran Arts Residency from January. While I am still working out some kinks from the new work created there I will be writing about it for another project as well as making new work that was inspired by my time there.

Here's a link to a lovely article about the Curley School in Ajo, Arizona, written by KJZZ writer Casey Kuhn.

July 28, 2018:  I had the pleasure of taking a Black Ash basket class with Kelly Church. She is amaznig! My daugther joined in on the fun too. 

Just getting started!
My foundation.
Detail work.
Two very happy basket makers!

In September of 2015, I had the opportunity to take an AMAZING Paiute/Miwok Basketry class in Yosemite through the Yosemite Conservancy from Lucy Parker, her mother Juia Parker, and her daughter Ursula. It was an honor to begin learning a traditional art form.

Classtime on our second day. My hands are not co-operating at this point.

Working the edge out.

Last glimpse of Yosemite headed home.

The class was a true learning experience. I am incredibly lucky to have been able to take it from this amazing family.  I met some great friends. I was humbled by great teachers as well. I have many years of learning to go. Materials have already been gathered (Thanks Peggy and Clay) to start some baskets in the Spring.
