I am a Fiber Artist currently exhibiting my work at The Atlelier Building the first Friday of each month. I am interested in creating beautiful handmade fiber pieces. I have most recently been working on making felted art. I enjoy joining natural materials in a myriad of colors and designs. The natural materials I use include Merino wool and silk. I use wet felting and Nuno felting techniques to create these textiles. Each piece created by felting is unique.
I also create by first hand knitting and then felting wool yarns into purses. I also knit using a wide variety of other yarns to create wearable pieces such as scarves and shrugs. This gives me the opportunity to play with color, texture and patterns.
My work has been or is exhibited at the following locations: Picture This Gallery (Peoria Heights), Junction City Art Fair, Peoria Heights Art Fair, Artists on The Boardwalk, Locust Street Art Gallery (Delavan), Gallery on Second (Kewanee), Hoerr Nursery and Anecdotes.
