Fine Arts and Crafts




I am also a member of Southern Highlands Craft Guild and make art baskets. See my web site for my gallery.

Artist Philosophy / Bio

Like many basket makers before me, I am self taught, but I have studied the works of many famious and talented weavers and visited them in their studios. My works have appeared in many art exhibits and on display in Washington DC. I frequently combine several traditional basket styles such as making a Shaker Cathead base with the Cherokee indian designs thus combining two primitive and creative cultures.

The result of my work is always a Sapphire Mountain Basket "Handmade especially for you".
