Artist Statement

I love making felt, designing fabric, thinking about how the fabric would best work on the human form and then making a pattern . I love to cut and sew, mistakes are usually the best thing that could happen, challenging me as to how I can then make this sculpture work. Draping my own patterns allows me to see my 2 dimensional felt in the 3 dimensional and then bring it to life. Stitching felt is the most rewardable part of this process as I see the fabric and pattern come together to create something unique, playing with top stitching, piecing of felts, layering of felts all is a part of the sculpting. My challenge is always the whole process from start to finish to create and complete each garment as an individual work of fiber art.My passion is the totla process of making and designing individual wears from start to finish. Exploration in felt challenges and encourages my pattern making which in turn echoes back to further influence my felt making concepts.
