Artist Statement                           

My life as an artist has taken many turns over the years.  Artist as student, artist as teacher and now retired teacher as felt artist.  Since my retirement, the discovery of felt making has charged me with a new artistic energy. The medium pushes me into constant and exciting engineering challenges as I push the medium to its limit.  Each work takes me down it’s own unique path towards new explorations in technique, engineering and presentation. It seems at the end of the day there is usually a sweet surprise to discover along with an “ah ha” moment for future felt works, each bringing with it new and unique possibilities.
