Pine Needle Baskets


Artist Statement 

The first time I saw pine needles being coiled into a basket, I was intrigued by the simplicity of using such a common commodity as pine needles to create such a beautiful object. After retiring from Florida Public Schools in 2002, I began creating my own little pine needle baskets.  It was a short time between my first basket and a first place prize.  I knew that basket making was becoming a second profession.  My goal is to make each creation better than the last.  Each unique piece reflects my growth as an artist who is constantly looking for new methods

and presentations.
