About the artist.

I learned the art of knot tying while in Blind school for I became blind at the age of 7 only to regain my sight years later.  As a long line Commercial fisherman out of Hawaii I was able to turn a discarded item into a knotted and useful work of art.

I  have been tying knots since the age of seven for at that time I became totally blind due to an illness forming blood clots behind the main artries of my eyes and was sent to Salem Ore Blind school. In the infurmary the blind were taught the use of their hands, working on looms, caining and learning the art of knots. After aproximately 3 years I became ill again only to have my sight  restored,  Knots and splices soon became my way of life. 

Over the years I have generated several unique styles and weaves with the art of knots.

All items are created and designed to be one of a kind. being hand tied here in the USA with origional design combo's.
