I use the process of wet felting to make my original designs and one-of-a-kind pieces. Wet felting takes advantage of the tiny fibers in wool yarns and fabrics and the lubrication usually provided by friction and soapy water to create varied textures of cloth. I love natural fibers. When I spin wool, I think of the history of the animal. Being at one with nature puts life in perspective. I am recycling nature to create my personal story. Not only do I make felted artwork, I also employ creative techniques such as needle felting, spinning wool, dyeing spun wool and crocheting or knitting to create unique design.
