I'll be at the Toronto Knitters Frolic this Saturday April 30, 2016. I'll have my kits and lots of peace fleece fibre for sale. This fibre is perfect for all things needle felting....it's got so much bulk that it's so much easier to felt 3 dimensional objects.
Come say hi! I'll be in the Heritage Hall Booth 44
Over the past 25 years as I traveled in my career as an animator I gleaned an acute awareness of the tactile nature of textiles. I took many classes in embroidery, pottery, batik, bead stringing and making
and finally in Berlin I found the art of felt making. In 2002 I made the decision to focus less on my animation career and more on my fibre art path. I have continued to explore all the joys and trials of being a fibre artist, but I do jump back in to animation when something wonderful comes along. I worked on the Universal feature "Curious George" in 2005 and on "The Princess and the Frog" which is a Disney feature and was released in December 2009.
I continue to try out new things, taking a wire sculpture course in Haliburton ON a couple years ago and just recently learnimg the art of Rug Hooking.
