Teaching Artist Bio: I have been weaving pine needle coil baskets for 40 years. I learned the basics of this craft at Linn-Benton Community College in Albany, OR. From those classes I spent many years producing baskets similar to the Native American designs and American craft. Over the years I have incorporated my own design and material changes to where my work is mixed media. I have displayed my work at art galleries in Hood River, Troutdale, Forest Grove, and Lake Oswego.
