About

I am a weaver of spirited wall hangings based in Ottawa, Ontario.

〰Weaver & Creative 👁 A hint of Wild for your home. Hand woven spirited fibre art〰

I grew up with art. When I was young, my father had a stained glass studio in our basement. I still have a rainbow of his, propped up against our craft room wall. I was in a family where making things was not just encouraged - but expected.

Growing up, I drew, I painted and I sculpted but it never came easy. The fluidity in these mediums clashed with my innate perfectionism - turning the act of creating art into a constant struggle for me. In university I studied business but every elective I was able to take was rooted in art.

My thought process was hopeful - maybe I could work in an art gallery, on the business side of things, maybe that would be enough? I never did that. I lived the corporate life as far removed from art as possible. In 2011 I was on bedrest due to some complications in my pregnancy with twins, when I struck up a relationship with fiber. A friend came bearing learn-to-knit books and a bag full of yarn. I spent those weeks discovering how to manipulate fiber and it felt good. But I knew from that first dishcloth, that something was missing for me.

I saw a woven wall hanging while we were on vacation and a rush of adrenaline flew in. When we got home, I bought my first loom, tracked down a local weaving master and began. Weaving is the perfect balance between creating and my need for precision. Painting with fiber is like nothing else I’ve experienced. It’s my drug of choice and I take it willingly.

I follow a spirited, yet linear approach in my design and production. I colour with my yarn and I am very precise in how I do it. It feeds my ocd-like tendencies. I have always been visually quite sensitive so I plan out my weavings accordingly. Each piece can take as little as 18 hours to others being about 3 weeks of work.
