Q&A With This Artist
A: I locally collect sweaters, knits and polar fleece that are sanitized, in the hottest water to create a soft hand while felting some materials. Starts with either a dream or request. I keep a journal. Sometimes it starts with a sketch or sometimes go right into the design process. That includes sketches, pattern, prototype and finalization. I live in my imagination and each character was to harken back to folk art, yet propose sustainability. My mission is to reduce post consumer waste while creating a keepsake.
A: Everything, from exploration to challenging what can be reclaimed and how these materials can be mixed and form sculptural stuffed animals. I am self-taught Designer/Artist. I love felting, weaving, silk painting, textile design, painting and illustration work. What gets me the most excited is that I can actually help reduce post consumer materials and be a solution to a greener, cleaner planet.
A: I love to cook and I eat very well. I love hiking and live where it is very beautiful. I love creating and that keeps me very young. I am also writing a book for children "featuring " Reimaginary Friends and using my illustrations for the book as well. I am planning to be published by next year.
