Although I hold an Associate Degree in Interior Design I view myself as a self-taught artist. I educated myself on the basics of felt making through study with other felting artists, research and experience. I continue to explore the medium and it is the seemingly limitless creative possibilities that keep me so intrigued with it. Two primordial senses; my visual passion for color and pattern, and the tactile pleasure of working with the textures of silk and wool evoke my emotions and influence my creativity. It is my hope that the sensual pleasures that fulfill me in the creation of my garments also awakens wonderful emotions in the wearer.
