I am a self taught artist. Although creative since childhood, I have been actively making “art” since 1995 when I began exploring mixed media to create objects of hope and beauty from found objects, broken car glass, wire, beads, and textiles.
I currently work with fiber (wool, alpaca, silk) making works of felt including: Nuno felted scarves using silk textiles and fiber; vessels; wrapped found objects, stones, and driftwood; and larger pieces including rugs, wall art and gameboards; bags; and hats and slippers. Felt is a relatively new medium for me, however, after exploring so many I feel like I have come home. Fiber and felting feel like a perfect expression of what I want to create: objects of beauty which are satisfyingly tactile and which nourish the soul.
I have participated in group shows at Judy Saslow Gallery (Chicago, IL), The Drawing Room (Portland, ME), Blueberry View Artist Retreat (Benton Harbor, MI) and have offered works to many fundraising auctions since 1997.
