As a young child, I was entertained on Saturdays with one of those new machines called a television. When I wasn’t watching westerns and wanting to be a cowgirl with Roy Rogers, I was watching John Neggy who gave drawing lessons on the TV. So I had my paper, pencils, and charcoal and continued to draw with charcoal and water colors through college where I studied Jewelry and Silversmithing and Interior Design at Kansas University. After the family was grown and gone and I moved to the country, where I continued painting and drawing in my spare time until one day I was meeting a friend in town for lunch. Since I was early, I decided to walk down Main Street and look in the shops. It was here that I found a basket shop and fell totally in love with baskets. I came home convinced that I wanted to weave and purchased some beginner books on the internet and some materials. That was about four or five years ago and I have been hooked on weaving ever since.
