    Artisan Profile:

    My interest in Native American arts and crafts, particularly Northwest basketry, led me to basket making. I wanted to understand and better appreciate what went into making a basket, from gathering and processing natural materials, to styling, and forming the basket. The logical course, it seemed to me, was to learn how to make baskets.
