Subject Matter: Pomo Basket Weavers

I live in Northern California, Lake-Sonoma-Mendocino counties. I have an affinity for the people on whose land I live--the Pomo people.


If you've ever seen Pomo baskets they are unbelievably beautiful. I remember admiring them as a young child in the Hearst Museum of Anthropology on UC Berkeley campus. Experts say that they are the best in the world. Most of them were made by women artists.


I am an artist and a woman. This group of women artists from the turn of the 19th Century to the present make objects of daily use that bear their aesthetic fingerprint. Historically they must have been the anchors or spokes of the community wheel amongst their people. The weavers carried on from one generation to the next, the traditions of craft, of symbols, of language, of self-respect and pride during a very difficult time of westward moving settlers.


These women artists inspired me & I wanted to represent them. These are my own artistic interpretations, representations of these special people. DisclaimerAny resemblance to real persons, dead or alive, or other real-life entities, past or present, is purely coincidental.


Thank you for your interest.
