About Me

Marilyn lived in Wisconsin where she taught for ten years at an independent day school.  Later she owned and managed two retail stores. She retired to New Mexico in 1995 and onlya few years ago discovered her passion for reed weaving.  Sculptural weavings have become her favorite pieces, both vessels and wall hangings. She will often incorporate interesting pieces of wood in her work.  She has studied under master basker weaver Pat Jeffers, natural fiber artist Donna Sakamoto Crispin, paper artist Leandra Spangler, basketry artist Lissa Hunter, pine needle artist Clay Burnett, and jewelry artist and weaver Mary Hettsmansperger.  She is a member of the Artists of Picacho Hills.
