About

I have been an artist working with wool for over 30 years now. It has been so long now that I have been "wool wrapping" I really have no idea what else I would ever want to do. I love working with the fiber and creating new ideas and pieces from this medium.
My home is in Midway, PA with my husband and our dog and cats.

I never thought in a million years that I would still be doing this and wanting to this long! LOL! How life turns out?

I would say probably my favorite all time item that I make are dogs! It is so much fun getting the pictures from my customers of their buddies and then recreating a miniature version of them. However, something I didn't expect from creating them were the countless conversations I have shared with other dog owners about their dogs. Boy how we all love our animals! Please read more about the dogs in my "Shop" description.

Over the years I have been featured in many wonderful magazines such as Country Home, Country Living, Wild Fiber, and most recently Domino Magazine.

I've a few customers who like me to notify them by email when I list a new item. If you would like to be added to that list just send me your email.
