Wool Fiberarts

I love making beautiful, practical, interactive artworks for the home and workspace---where they can be enjoyed every day.

After years of experimenting in many different art forms, I fell in love with felted wool. It's such a versatile medium---like a fabric that I can paint and sculpt with.

I create my felted wool pillows using a combination of Japanese Shibori, applique, and layering techniques. Shapes and textures from nature inspire my designs, but so too do the funky pop-art shapes of the '70s design I grew up with!

Walks through the Green Mountains of Vermont provide endless inspiration for my designs, whether in the patterns of lichen, rocks, and sand or the interplay of water and stone.
