I have operated my Anderson Alley Studio since 1989, specializing in weaving and textile art for use in homes and businesses. Creating with a variety of fibers and materials has been the focus of my work.

I earned my B.F.A. in Weaving and Textile Design from RIT in 1988, where I created damask-woven fabrics with Plexiglas forms. I've continued to work with materials for three-dimensional play. Weaving and embroidering with wire, using traditional fiber techniques, is an important segment of my work. I enjoy the complex images and the sculptural effects as well as the natural beauty of copper and brass.

I create a variety of hand woven items for sale — commissioned work, craft/art shows, in shops, and through the Oxford Gallery. Some of my work can be seen at Strong Memorial Hospital and the Summit at Brighton. I also teach as a visiting artist in area schools and enjoy working with adults and youth.
