I am an artist with a background in painting and drawing. I love knitting, needle felting, and drawing. I use my own designs for my felt beads, each of which are handmade. Much of my work in jewelry is inspired by shapes and textures found in nature, specifically sea and ocean life. I started out making felt beads because the technique seemed easy to learn and the beads can be customized in a large variety of ways. From there I have branched out into more elaborate felted shapes that take on the look of soft sculpture. I love the flexibility of working in wool and fiber and experimenting with color, shape, and texture.
