Detroit Fiber Works, Detroit, MI

Artist Statement

Having journeyed through various means of artistic expression (jewelry design, surface design, glass fusing and more), I am now exploring life as a fiber artist. My primary technique is felting: Wet Felting and Nuno Felting. I also do a lot of eco-dyeing and eco-printing on silk and wool. I LOVE THIS WORK! I am endlessly intrigued by the transformation of wool roving into beautiful objects, to wear, to look at, to live with and to treasure. The quality of felting that I love the most is that it is virtually impossible to make the exact same thing twice. IT SIMPLY CAN NOT BE DONE! I also appreciate that in my work, there is no waste, and no toxins. My goal is to leave this earth better than I found it!
