My work is inspired by nature, life experiences and personal reflection. I graduated with a BFA from Iowa State University and went on to earn an MSW from Ohio State. I have incorporated art in working with youth and adults in the US and abroad. My fiber work includes eco-dye, wet felting, nuno felting and shibori dye techniques. While on sabbatical in Austria in 2008, I was introduced to wet felting. I am continuously inspired by the possibilities of the wool, fibers and its versatility. Wool can be wearable or sculptural, colorful or neutral, hard or soft, its potential is only limited by the creator.
