I am a Fiber/Textile artist who uses carded wool to create seamless wearable art using the felting technique. As the fabric is created, so is the garment making it a flowing sculptural experience. Hats are created using hand dyed wool roving in layers to sculpted, warm, unique hats. I also use natural dyes such as Eucalyptus or Walnut to create both prints from the botanicals or dye baths in my process, creating earthy, natural patterns on wearable art, table runners, and framed art pieces.

My work was been featured in Foothills Magazine October 2017 edition. I have participated in the Placer Arts Studio Tour 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2021. First place award in the Fiber Art Expect the Unexpected Show at the Art League of Lincoln, First Place in 2022 in the ArtAttack Show at the Art League of Lincoln, and the Blue Line Gallery Art of Fashion Show. Best of Show Award Reno ArtFest 2019. My work is currently available at Riverside Gallery – Truckee, CA, High Hand Gallery in Loomis, CA, Persimmon Gallery in Auburn and various art shows throughout the year.
