Artist Statement

In 1979 I sat down at a loom for the first time and knew that I wanted to be a weaver. I love throwing the shuttle and seeing the patterns develop in the cloth. There is something magical in working with thread to create interrelationships of color and pattern. I am drawn to fine silk thread which I weave in intricate geometric patterns.

My main focus is weaving tallitot, scarves and shawls. I especially enjoy working with individuals to custom design a tallit that has meaning for them.
