Artist Statement

I am an artist and teacher. I graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.) in New York City, where I studied textile surface design with a specialization in weaving. In 2007, I founded Weaving Hand, a Brooklyn based studio for children and adults that celebrates the art of hand weaving. Weaving Hand facilitates weaving as a creative tool to enhance developmental growth of children and adults with intellectual, emotional and physical disabilities. I am also a resident artist at League Artist Natural Design (LAND) in DUMBO, a studio and gallery that feature work of adult artists living with disabilities.
