I've been a maker and artisan since I was a child. I was an art major at San Francisco State U, and have delved into a wide variety of visual arts media over a lifetime. These include illustration, sculpting, leatherwork, faux finishes, costume making, and found object alteration. My primary loves, which I always return to, are needlework, beadwork, and traditional-style basketry as taught to me by the legendary weaver Julia Parker (Coast Miwok/Kashaya Pomo). You may also find me making props for shows, meticulously reproducing items found in video games, and teaching crafts to adults and children alike.
