Greetings!

Welcome to my web site! I am thrilled to share my work and life with you online in this forum. I am a professional artist and woodturner, and simply love creating things from wood, fiber, gold, and all materials opulent and magical. I am a Master Fiber Artist, and my specialties lie in Colorwork, (Color Theory, Technique, & Tuning), and Free Form Crochet. My work has been exhibited throughout the United States, as well as many international locations, and has won several awards.

Yet nothing gives me more pleasure than woodturning... picking up a piece of wood and trying to discern the patterns within... finally finding the perfect shape the piece whispers to me as I'm working... turning and sanding it to be silky smooth, then invigorating the grain with color! I love to add tactile and visual texture with 24k gold and fibres, which are integrated seamlessly, creating an exciting and daring artwork. (Please see my Artist Statement here).

My experiences in the fiber arts give me a unique perspective on making "tools of the trade" -- crochet hooks, knitting needles, nostepindes, drop spindles, etc. because I know how they ought to feel when you work with them: length, balance, and form. To me, the beauty of exotic wood and stone adds that extra "something special," which translates into heirloom quality artifacts. I make each piece by hand, one at a time, which is unique; one-of-a-kind.

I hope you enjoy your visit to my web site. If you have any questions, comments, or conversation, please don't hesitate to e-mail me. I love hearing from people across the Internet :) My work is available primarily through the Internet on eBay and Etsy, as well as by contacting me directly.

Katherine
