I began working with industrial weight felt in 2010, after hanging up my corporate hat and leaving the hustle and bustle of running a company that designed and created visual merchandise and decorative programs for specialty retailers including Saks Fifth Avenue, REI, Godiva Chocolatier and L.L. Bean.

Having an extensive background in art history and costume design I've returned to my first artistic passion…textiles. With felt I am creating artwork that is tactile and fuses my interest in form and color with my technical skill. Since an artist is hopefully more than one's art, I also am designing and making visually exciting everyday pieces that put the 'fun' back in function. 

It's a process and a ride I hope you will take with me.
