My soft sculptured animals and wearable art are inspired by the natural world and love of color, patterns and play.

 

Felting is the oldest textile technique. Combining wool fibers with water and soap and vigorous kneading to form a durable, dense and strong unwoven material used for clothing, decoration, shelter and warmth dates back thousands of years.

 

The techniques I use are based on traditional feltmaking as well as contemporary methods combining layers of wool and silk, viscose and bamboo fibers with hand dyed silk fabric. This combination of various fibers and fabrics create endless possibilities through the blending of colors, textures and forms and the naturalness of the materials.

 

I have a degree in fine art from Cooper Union and a former life as a graphic designer and children's book illustrator. Now I love making artful toys, elegant scarves and other accessories.
