“A nomadic past with a focus on environmental conservation and humanitarian services has exposed me to global influences in design and culture and has fostered my desire to create functional and visual art with an ecological sensitivity.

As a second generation fiber artist, I freely explore the traditional art of wet felting, the fusing of raw fibers into a textile form with soap, water, and agitation, as well as the contemporary technique of nuno felting.

I combine renewable natural fiber resources, reclaimed fabrics, and my own hand-dyed fibers and fabrics to organically create each of my designs.  I allow the materials I use, and influences and experiences in my life, past and present, to guide me instinctively in color and design.”
