By chance I became a Woolfolk through marriage, but for some time now I have been a wool folk. In 2002, while studying to be an art teacher and feeling like I hadn’t found my art media niche, I stumbled upon textiles. In the display case at the university I was attending were several beautifully felted items that had been completed in a workshop in the textiles department. When I saw them I thought…there it is, that is the class I need to take. Most of my early work was not wool, but I eventually found my way to what has become one of my favorite materials.
I am a textile artist and educator living in Virginia. Woolfolk is where I share my attempt at living a creative life.
