I began teaching myself how to make dreamcatchers in the spring of 2023. I was living in a very small town called Cooper Landing, in Alaska, collecting twigs of Aspen to bend into awkward shapes, striving for circles. I wove many odd webs back then. Now that I’ve figured out how to weave the webs, it has become my passion. I wish that no one felt afraid to fall asleep at night.

I use many different kinds of beads with my dreamcatchers. I especially enjoy using wood, copper, and gemstones, such as jasper, tanzanite, and tiger’s eye. The feathers I use are either chicken, turkey, duck, or pheasant feathers. I wrap most of the hoops with deer hide lace. Each dreamcatcher comes in a burlap bag with a magnet that has my dreamcatcher poem on it. My poem was inspired by a lynx that crossed the road in front of me, in Alaska. My dreamcatchers are also for sale at The Art Hive in Staunton, Virginia. I take custom orders, as well.
