New York and Arrowmont.

I moved to New York in 1997 and worked for several companies that designed and manufactured textiles for the residential and commercial markets.  My day to day job was to edit and develop repeated patterns which had a significant impact on how I thought about imagery.  I took a class at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, with Bhakti Zeik, on brocade and discovered that I was not very interested in imagery (other than pattern) but instead structure.  The work that followed was simple pocket cloths with found objects inside the pockets like fortune cookie papers, looking glasses and miscellaneous tools.  I was fortunate enough to teach a Double Weave class at Arrowmont and show work in a faculty show during my class.
