Nancy Briemle

As an art major in college, I realized I was interested in three dimensional art. I gravitated from weaving and spinning to basketry. I have been making baskets since the early 80's exploring through classes and conferences all the techniques. I consider myself a fiber artist doing quilting, felting , gourd art and basketry. Creative basketry is my first love. It feeds my soul.
