“I’ve always been especially interested in fiber. I sewed for people when kids were young. Then learned weaving and finally found felting about 7 years ago. I Live in So Gilboa with my husband Jeff on the property where I was raised but in a new home and love it.”

I had always wanted to learn how to make my own fabric and finally happened on the chance at a workshop through UCCCA a few years ago. I have become addicted to it and have been learning several techniques and  projects through workshops  and experiment.. Many of these are taught by the major felters all over the world. It is an ancient technique, the initial way people made fabric. I now continue to learn new techniques and sell some of the works. I make scarves, shawls, purses.table runners, pillows and wall hangings. I also make some jackets and vests for myself.  I draw my ideas mainly from nature  and intuition.”
