Biographical Info

Artist Statement: The process of making felt is very old and unique. I learned felting through Russian felt artists. I use merino wool and other natural fibers to wet felt and nuno felt. To create felt fabric, I use wool, soap, hot water and my hands. I create shawls, scarves, hats, vests, baby booties and lamp shades in unique design and colors. I enjoy working with wool, locks and silk. The process to make felt is long; it takes approximately 14 hours to make one shawl. Nuno felt is using wool with adding silk or other fabric to create a different effect. Each item is one of a kind, it is never the same.
