“My years of research as an artisan assimilate the textile design methods of ancient and indigenous cultures with the agrarian culture of Western Civilization. A portion of my philosophy is to incorporate the early American cottage industry as a redevelopment of an economic process in the 21st century.
The approach to my work relies more on the human process of design rather than the mechanized version of it. I have been working as an artist for over 20 years; however, my influences span millennia drawing on the earliest sustainable materials.
My work is largely produced without the use of fossil fuel. I am currently a regional artist in the South Coast of Massachusetts. I teach sustainable textile design workshops and facilitate my natural dye and historical textile research.
