Felting is the process of making felt. This is accomplished using natural fibers such as wool and washing them in hot water to cause the fibers to mat together. In addition I use synthetic/decorative yarns interwoven with the wool yarns. During the felting process the non-wool yarns do not felt but become locked into the wool fibers causing varied textures and designs. I then embellish each piece with pearls, antiques glass beads and crystals.
In addition to my work in fiber I manage private and foundation art collections and am an independent curator. I am a member of the Surface Art Association, Jewish Artists Initiative and ArtTable.
