My educational background is primarily in fine arts (painting, drawing, and ceramics), but since finishing my bachelor’s degree I have experimented and self-taught with a variety of fiber forms and techniques, including both wet and needle felting with wool and silk, the ancient and time-consuming process of shibori dyeing, traditional sewing, weaving, and embroidery, to create a range of art and accessories. More recently my love of fiber has led me to experiment with basket weaving techniques and wire-working to create necklaces and shawl pins. In addition, I’ve started growing and foraging natural dye materials to dye yarn, some of which is for sale this year.
Inspired by botanical forms in nature, as well as color and texture, you will often find me collecting nature’s flotsam and jetsam; seed hulls, cicada wings, pieces of bark. I am especially drawn to natural variations of the one-of-a-kind seen in nature and spend as much time as possible up in the woods on the farm where I live with my family in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
