“Every piece of palm fiber is different depending on the species and the season. Each has a personality. I never know exactly what I will create until I begin to shape it. Once dried, the basket tells me what sort of embellishment, if any, or what plant or animal I should woodburn on the surface. It’s such a hands-on process that I really feel I am collaborating with the materials. My goal is to allow others to experience this gift from our tropical paradise.”
