I am a fiber artist with the goal of my art being to connect with others and bring them a smile. My mediums are cloth and wool rovings. I love their softness which evokes feelings of friendliness and warmth. I enjoy their texture and variety, and the fun of making something unexpected.
Following some serious health issues a few years ago, I found myself with lymphedema and neuropathy.Unfortunately, these problems affected my hands so that I can no longer do the fine sewing to make the cloth creations I have enjoyed so much.
The good news is that discovered needle felting and am having a wonderful time playing in this field that is new to me.
Not being sure what to make, I was fooling around with some ideas when two little girls came into the shop. I asked them for ideas, and one of them suggested hedgehogs. Inspiration! It's good to still be learning and trying new things.
