Basketweaving engages my body, mind and spirit. It strengthens my fingers and arms, increases my range of motion, and keeps my whole body limber. Problem solving challenges my mind.  Bringing form out of chaos feeds my spirit.

I create regularly and alternate basketry with other mediums.  Changing the medium refreshes me and gives another expression to my creative energy.
