Meet Our Member Artists
As a multi-media artist, I love working with various mediums, but wool is my favorite. It is simultaneously painterly and sculptural. The very nature of wool lends itself to realism, texture, two-dimensional and three-dimensional works of art, leaving the opportunity open for the incorporation of unexpected elements. When I paint with wool, I try to connect with and capture these amazing scenes and beings on our area, especially their beauty and fragility. I favor realism, enjoying how this approach encourages us to celebrate animals’ natural beauty and engage directly with them, their needs, and their environment.
I love sharing the joy of learning, growth, and fiber arts with others. Much of my professional life has been devoted to animal welfare and teaching at the college level as a sociologist. I am thoroughly enjoying this new stage of my life, turning these interests towards my artistic creations and teaching fiber art.
