Artist Statement

Weaving is my heritage. My great-grandmother from Finland spent her days weaving, her son playing amongst her looms. Now I carry on the tradition: creating textiles for the home and body.

My palette borrows from nature: the muted blues and greens of prairie grasses found on the Oklahoma plains, the greys and browns from the woods that grew behind my childhood home. Simple patterns reminiscent of traditional farmhouse quilt blocks and the organic repetition of leafy curves are often found within my fabrics.

Created with quality and honesty in mind, all wares are woven with natural fibers: often fine wool, cotton, or bamboo threads. Recent works also feature naturally dyed fibers including a cotton warp dyed blush pink with avocado stone and merino wool dyed mauve-grey with blackberry.

As I transition into life in my custom designed tiny house, creating carefully curated environments is ever forefront on my mind. I construct long-lasting, unique textiles that are both beautiful and practical for everyday use, and that appeal to simple and modern aesthetics.
