Linda started weaving baskets in the fall 1987 shortly after moving to Northern NY. Her interest in weaving quickly expanded to designing, teaching, exhibitions and juried shows. Linda enjoys working with a variety of materials, including reed, bark that she harvests, waxed linen, beads and other materials. While much was self-taught, she has attended conferences to learn other techniques and to work with other materials. Known for her intricate patterns, eye for color and incorporating different materials in her designs keeps it exciting for her. Through the years she has won several awards for her baskets. In 2013 and 2015 two of her baskets, Sagandaga and Radiance were in the NBO Biennial Juried Exhibition. Her Hiker Adirondack Pack Basket was in the December 2017 issue of Martha Stewart Living Magazine. Linda teaches her designs throughout the United States for various guilds, conferences, art centers and organizations. She enjoys sharing her basketry knowledge and experience with her students as it’s rewarding to see their progress and excitement with what they have learned and made.
