My passion for being busy and creative with my hands actually started in the garden. I grew up spending hours working in the garden, with my dad, on our family dairy farm in Southern Wisconsin. That passion for plants grew into a horticulture degree and eventually into my first family business.
My background in floral and landscape design translated easily into fiber arts when I was exposed to felting in the early 2000's. I took my first felting class at a local llama farm, and was introduced to the beauty and versatility of wool.
I have been lucky enough to attend felting classes taught by individuals from around the world. Through those classes and my own experimenting, I fell in love with high-quality wool, eco-dying, and the remarkable practicality and beauty of felted products.
Felting allows me to work with color and texture in ways I never thought possible and has connected me to an amazing community of people who share my love of fiber and creative passion.
