I work in two mediums, hand-building ceramics, and fiber works. I am an alpaca farmer and use all the products I harvest each year from my herd to produce woven scarfs, knitted hats and scarfs, felted scarfs, woven rugs, and braided rugs. We harvest the fiber once a year, by shearing, then sorting the fiber into grades. I hand dye the fiber and send it to a local mill to process it into yarn or rug yarn. From that product, I make a number of different pieces of wearable or usable art. I am also a ceramicist working from slab clay creating functional and decorative pottery. I have a love of texture and all my pieces, whether woven, braided, or constructed from clay have movement and texture. I have mainly sold products from craft fairs or at fiber festivals. Recently I converted the garage to my house into a studio and small store where I sell my products.
