My fibre journey is a delicate balance between science and art. Curiosity and research help me to understand the intrinsic nature of my materials and practice helps me to improve upon the mechanics of skill. There is a point, however, where I must turn my mind off and allow my hands and intuition to guide me. I enjoy sharing what I have learned through articles I write for Spin Off and Ply magazines as well as through my teaching. My greatest joy is when a student can actually see how their spinning has improved and the thrill they get when they can spin a yarn that truly speaks to their heart.
