I have been playing with wool for as long as I can remember. I grew up in the big city...no...not a farm girl, and the wool of sheep and fiber of other animals has captured my heart. I began this obsession when I became a Waldorf School handwork teacher and have been full on ever since.
I love the process of shearing the sheep, to washing the wool, to dyeing it amazing colours, to spinning it into yarn, to designing knitted hat patterns and then knitting or crocheting the yarn into something..... mainly hats...I love hats, some years...lol...I make way too many.
ColourSparks is my fiber studio. It's the place where I play with the wool and colour and have way too much fun.....the stash of fiber and yarn spewing out of my studio requires some new homes.
I'm an artist...wow that was once super hard for me to say. I went back to university as a mature student to do a Fine Arts Degree. One day, my professor asked, “What have you got to say as an artist....wow, me an artist....ugh...I have something to say.....Really? Then...the awareness that my desire to to do art had always been there and that ...yes.... I had something to say.
Since then, I have used every moment to expand my capacity as an artist. I play with paint, felt, fiber, sculpture, installation, colour, dyeing, whatever I choose that day.
I have been invited to show in galleries, both alone and with my felting group Art Felt Collaborative. I teach felting, knitting, dyeing and recently began a new painting series Release the Artist, Release the Canvas with my friend Tanya Graham.
