TikaTucker has made things all her life. She created her first basket as a Girl Scout - but it was 25 years before she made her next one! Her passion for color, pattern, and texture is now fully focused on making baskets that are known for their color and shape. There is a certain joy for her in producing something beautiful from ordinary materials. Tika has taught at seminars and conventions throughout the U.S. and says she loves the "aha" moments when students "get it!"
