Artist Statement


As a lifelong lover of animals, art, and nature I find satisfaction in creating art using a sustainable, eco-friendly medium – the wool from my own sheep. I take my flock’s fiber from shorn fleeces to finished felted artwork.

My raw felted fleeces are a celebration of the wool itself, the sheep that produce it, and life in rural Minnesota. I am currently exploring ways of melding felting with other design processes to create wearable art, sculpture, and home accessories.





I have studied with renowned artists both locally and from around the world. My felt artwork has won awards in fine art venues and has been presented in publications including The NewYork Times and Lark Crafts’ 500 Felt Objects. I teach classes regionally and at my studio in rural Ogilvie, MN.
