She loves teaching and demonstrating her work. She also has travelled around sharing her technique
A word from the artist: “I have always had an affinity for wood and started turning in 1993. I became a full-time turner in 1998. I have had the good fortune to observe and learn from many fine wood artists.
 
The more I work with wood, the more I appreciate its nature: warm and tactile to the touch, beautiful grain, and yielding nature. At times, wood offers far less than I need—constraints, though, can bring new insights.
 
Due to some life circumstances, I’ve had a few years to reflect rather than to make and now have the time and liberty to pursue making full-force again. I’m looking forward to riding the edge, following my visions and seeing what evolves.”
