I like to work with raw fleeces, hand dyed locks and reclaimed natural textiles. I love the sturdy, reliable durability of time-tested conventional natural fibers. I work with a variety of natural fibers, incorporating not only wool, but also Alpaca, Angora, Llama and silk. I enjoy the process of taking these fibers from their raw state and reworking them into a palette of lustrous vibrant silks and woolen vibrant tones. As I begin to construct a piece, the multiple textures, colors and forms are applied and interwoven. This process creates a type of contemporary tapestry, bringing a three dimensional element to my impressionistic work.
