Although I employ a variety of techniques to create textiles, the one I use most frequently is fingerweaving. This is an ancient art form that is done completely by hand. In the earliest days, natural materials such as animal fur or plant fibers were spun or corded to use for weaving. As a contemporary weaver, I use commercial wool, cotton, or acrylic yarns. With these fibers, I employ the oblique, warpface, or a warpface and oblique combination technique to create belts, knee bands, bags, earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. Beads can also be included to create or enhance a design.
