My current artistic practice is felt-making, the process of turning wool fleece or roving (unspun animal fiber), a loose, unintegrated, fluffy conglomeration of fibers into a fabric that has cohesion, integrity and dimension.

I use wet-felting, primarily, which uses soap, water and friction to create a fabric. I make flat surfaces, such as wall hangings, pillow covers, table runners, or scarves, or 3-diimensional objects, such as vessels or bowls.

I’m particularly interested in the interaction of color, while I’m also playing with texture, pattern, especially geometric, and composition. My work is largely abstract. I sometimes also incorporate natural materials, such as stones and shells, into my work.
