When I'm not creating art, I enjoy gardening, cooking, and spending time with my family and 4 cats. Many of my pieces are influenced by my fascination with nature. I love creating a certain mood by the use of color and texture in my work.
I’ve always been creative- when I was little I created a picture book of horses all drawn in crayon. It was only recently that I started taking formal art classes at a local studio. I fell in love with working with wool, creating wet and needle felted landscapes. I also do acrylic & watercolor painting and mixed media.
I use a variety of wools and other fibers - Merino, Corriedale, Romney, Angelina, Tussah silk - to create original works of art. I incorporate fabrics into my felt as well, called Nuno Felting. I also embellish my wool paintings and sculptures with embroidery thread and beads.
