Thank you for visiting my store! I am inspired by natural objects, materials and designs and through spending much of my spare time in the majestic mountains of Utah, I get to enjoy the spirit of nature and the subtleties of natural patterns.

The wool panels are all hand crafted and the designs are created with fluidity as the end product is never visualized at the start.

I hope you enjoy my work and I'd love to create a piece specifically for you. Custom work is always exciting!
