First and foremost, I am a storyteller. All of my work includes a visual and written narrative. I am very interested in texture and form..each time I begin a new endeavor I attempt to push myself further away from what I have done before. My new work is a culmination of many years of trial and error . I began working in wool about eleven years ago primarily doing single needle felting. The projects started very small, but now are getting larger and larger. I also combine my oil painting with felted pieces adhered to the work,this gives the paintings more dimension. All of my work is self-invented folk lore which hopefully elicits an emotional reaction. I continue to be excited working in these mediums. I believe this shows in the finished product.
