I began weaving in 2007, taking classes with Pat Bullen at the Columbus Cultural Arts Center, and I really fell in love with the craft. I took several session of classes at the Center allowing me to get experience working on 3 different floor looms, different fiber types, and different weaves completing the whole process from choosing the yarn, to measuring the warp, warping the loom, weaving the projects and then finishing the projects off the loom. I was also able to display a couple of my projects at the Student Exhibit at the Center in May 2008.
I now own a Harrisville 8-shaft 36" floor loom, an 8-shaft Macomber BabyMac loom (portable), and a 24-shaft ARM Patronic loom.
In recent years I have had the opportunity to study with nationally-known teachers both through local guild-offered workshops and through classes at Penland School of Crafts. I have also started to exhibit work in local and national/international shows.
