I firmly believe that every human being is an artist and needs only to discover their medium. Felting is the most natural expression of my creativity, as I am driven by tactile work and art. It is truly a form of sculpting, with wool as the material. There are no limitations with felting and no need to be exact. It is an organic creative practice that allows the human spirit to rest in the warmth of nature.
Through working in Waldorf education, apprenticing with felters in New Zealand and the United States, selling my wares as Feral Felt, and majoring in Fiber Arts at the Evergreen State College, I absorbed many techniques and a deep understanding of natural fibers. I have taught artist cooperatives in Guatemala, summer camps at Sunfield Farm and have been one of the felting teachers at Bazaar Girls for over 3 years.
This art has a rich history in Mongolia, Turkey, the Netherlands, and many other countries as a community art with multiple practical applications. Felting is truly an act of bonding, not only with wool, but with others.
