Artist Statement:
As a straw artist, I am part of a continuance of an ancient folk art celebrating the harvest. Wheat weaving, as it is called in America, is the art of plaiting straw into designs. A residency combines teaching wheat weaving experience for students and teachers while sharing the history of straw and society. Age old skills would be conveyed to a new generation who would gain an appreciation for the natural beauty of wheat and its importance to our every day life. I am a juried member of the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen and a member of the National Association of Wheat Weavers
