I'm a (mostly) self-taught beadwork artist. I create one-of-a-kind pieces of wearable art using a variety of techniques.

Skills and Techniques
I am highly skilled in off-loom beadweaving techniques of all types: peyote stitch, brick stitch, square stitch, herringbone (Ndebele) stitch, right angle weave, bead embroidery and various beaded ropes. I look to history for my inspiration and combine these very old beadweaving techniques with modern materials to create one-of-a-kind pieces of wearable beaded artwork.
