Felted Wearable Art

The process of felt making is a true passion of mine! After spending a number of years exploring different mediums including weaving and watercolours, I was introduced to wool and felting and fell in love with this ancient craft. Since then, I have explored and experimented with different techniques and from that emerged my current interest in creating clothing using wool and silk. I have exhibited my work in Canada and abroad.

 

The tactile and restriction-free nature of wool allows me to create truly unique felt pieces of contemporary, wearable art in the form of nuno-felted wraps, scarves, vests, jackets, tunics, ponchos, bags and hats.  All of my pieces are rich in colour – some are made with vibrant, hand-dyed silk pieces and others from the colours of nature that have been dyed directly onto the felted fabric that I have created.  

 

I use only the very finest silks and wools in making my garments, and enjoy making unique pieces to order.  Come and visit me in my studio on the Gatineau River, or look for my work this year at the following locations:

4-Way Vests
