Stories in wool. I create handwoven, narrative blankets drawing inspiration from my dreams, my childhood, the season, stories of my students and collaboration with the customer as well as the spirit of the project as it progresses. I love color and handling the fibers themselves, and I use needle felting to physically apply color and design to the finished weaving.
Artist's statement: My mission is just an extension of what I have described above. It is to continue to create these stories and to find the audience who truly wants to listen to each one or who would like to create with me their own tall tale told in fiber.
