Custom Installations and Wearables
My custom work ranges from small elegant silk wraps to cozy woolen throws to large installations for home or office. Silk wraps are available in black, white and a range of hand-dyed custom colors and textures. Vogue sweaters, jackets and wraps are available in many colors, sizes and textures. Felted and handwoven installations are limited only by the imagination and the size of the allocated space.
Rocky Mountain Aspen Trees in Fall - SOLD
Aspen trees are often called "Quakies" - quaking aspen - giving soft, audible sounds as mountain breezes brush their leaves. In the Fall, aspen leaves splash mountain sides (and my own property) with brilliant gold color, inviting me to more creative work.
All my art is hand-crafted in my studio from local Colorado fibers - alpaca, llama, curly mohair, Icelandic and merino wool, plus a bit of silk and wolf hair - natural and hand-dyed, needle felted, and wet felted.
This work is a professionally matted and framed 32" x 40" felted tapestry. Custom made for a private collector in Colorado.
Commissions are welcome. Prices start at $125 for small 8x10 pictures.
