Commissioned Weavings

Using found natural objects like driftwood, prairie plants and seed heads and incorporating copper wire and hand-spun yarn, I build natural weavings of all shapes and sizes.


Weavings pictured are installed at
Kosa Ayurvedic Spa in Madison, Wisconsin

Ephemeral art

Connecting with nature can take many forms. One of my favorite activities with  groups is to celebrate nature by creating ephemeral art.
During community art events, I construct weaving frames between trees with local, hand-spun wool. Children harvest prairie plants and create collaborative, ephemeral weavings as an offering of gratitude.

Asian, Mayan and Christian traditions depict mandalas - symbols of the cosmos, as well as that within our minds and bodies and the relationship between the two. The circular pattern has been used as a focal point for meditation or prayer.  Creating an ephemeral mandala offers us a space to pay homage to transient nature of everything and live in our present experience without attachment to a final product.

These mandalas were made with children as a part of nature celebrations and gratitude practices at Patrick Marsh Conservancy, Sun Prairie and Brittingham Park in Madison, Wisconsin.
