Weaving Artist Spotlight: Carol Emarthle Douglas

 

CAROL EMARTHLE DOUGLAS

Carol Emarthle Douglas considers herself a Traditional & Contemporary basket weaver

She creates baskets that tell a story by design, shape, and use of color. Coiling baskets is an extremely time consuming process, and the baskets she produces in a year’s time are one of a kind.

“My inspiration is taken from my Northern Arapaho and Seminole heritage. I have based some of my designs on the Plains style beadwork, ledger art, and parfleche designs from my mother’s tribe.

I am fortunate to have such a rich heritage to draw upon to inspire my work.” READ MORE…
