Welcome to Shuttle Works Studio!
I hope you will explore the page tabs above, along with my blog where I write about my weaving and fiber related activities, as well as a bit about the rest of my life.
I am a handweaver, creating wearables as well as functional items for the home.
In May/June 2019 I moved myself and weaving studio into Eagle River, WI. The studio and gallery space are located at 836 W. Pine Street (Hwy. 70 W.). The days and hours open are listed on the right.
I will be continuing woven shibori/indigo-dyed scarves/cowls, and will expand into wearables. I will also be weaving Norwegian/ Scandinavian style works for the home. Returning to making wool socks on an antique sock machine is also in the plans for this year. I have had inquiries about teaching so that is being considered.
In addition to the studio space, Eagle River Gallery is a space I share with my daughter Sarah (Celtic Wolf Studio) who makes wire and stone jewelry, and my daughter-in-law Char (Heirloom Custom Wood Designs) who does woodworking, sign-making, and more. All three studios are on the premises.
We are busy preparing for the Northwoods Art Tour(s), July 26-28, and again Oct. 11-13. We are also planning a special Winter Open Studio Weekend and will have wonderful handwoven/handmade gift items available.
This is an exciting change and I am looking forward to weaving and creating in this new space. If you are in the area I hope you stop in!
Artist Statement: As a handweaver, my goal is to convey a sense of simplicity and elegance in my work. Using natural fibers, each warp is an opportunity to explore the elements of color, design, structure, texture, and technique, from simple to complex.
