Welcome to my world of distinctive fiber art!  

I incorporate many techniques in my work including hand dying, hand felting, nuno 

felting and compression resist techniques

like shibori. I use crochet, embroidery, hand and machine sewing, wool drawing, thread painting, wire wrapping, wet felting, and

needle felting.




It is important to me to maintain a natural, handmade feel and look to my work that

shows consistent high quality craftmanship.

Thank you for joining me on my journey!
