Inspired by the magnificence and beauty of nature and my surroundings, I seek to capture the whimsical aspects and simplicity of form. Creating with clay, wool and other materials derived from nature, I take pleasure in the tactile and sensual qualities of these mediums. My sculptural forms can be viewed to have a utilitarian and or aesthetic purpose.
My recent fascination with felting began in the fall of 2009, immediately consumed with this new process, my skills evolved quickly and I am still astonished with the variety of outcomes possible. It also became apparent to me that like clay, felting crosses the sometimes vague “boundaries” of art and craft and I again find a positive overlap. By the end of 2009 I began making “groupings” of felt sculptures that appeal to collectors and galleries alike.
