Pine Needle Basket Artist
Pine needle basket making is a Native American craft that dates back some 9000 years, even before pottery. I am a self-taught artist and my baskets are in collections all across the United States and also in 11 different countries. Baskets are sewn together with artificial sinew or waxed linen thread. It is a “lost art” being revived in this era and is truly “a labor of love”.
Depending on the day and the mood, I switch from silversmithing to watercolor and oil painting and it's not unusual to have several projects in process at the same time. My sterling silver jewelry is crafted by my hand from beginning to end and I use natural gemstones in simple and easy to wear settings. My inspiration for paintings comes from the vast, open Nebraska and Kansas landscape where nothing gets in the way of the views.
"Beauty is held in the eyes of the beholder. I capture the beauty through the eyes of different beholders. All the colors and shapes of this world is my canvas. From a simple flower in a garden to a beautiful sunset. The lens of my camera can bring emotions, fond moments and memories with just a click of the shutter."
Nye Street Studio captures beautiful photography of places in Nebraska, several other states in the U.S. and overseas. I do little to no photoshopping to my photos and work very hard to capture what I see as is. My inventory includes matted and framed photos, canvases, acrylics, and other specialty pieces.
Fiber & Jewelry Artist
I enjoy and am inspired to create every day and will oftentimes start a piece not fully knowing where it will go, intuitively it will visualize for me throughout the creative process. I love to create fiber arts with found pieces of wood and incorporating different techniques and textures with weaving and macrame together. Jewelry is also a passion for me, and I love silversmithing and working with gemstones to create unique and one of a kind pieces of wearable art.
