Mixed Media Artist, Felter, and Weaver
I am an engineer and healthcare IT exec by day and mixed media artist by night. Drawn to the combination of fiber with wood, I routinely walk in the woods of northwestern Wisconsin picking up branches and having one way chats with the local fauna or hang out at the wood mill gazing longingly at live edge cut offs for my inspiration. My art is focused on the feelings and imagery that the nature around me evokes.
I combine needle felting, wet felting and Nuno felting techniques and sometimes incorporate methods such as Joomchi (paper manipulation) if I am trying to capture a specific texture into my pieces. And I almost always integrate some form of wood and good humor into my art.

I tend to gravitate towards animals but I am game to try just about anything and really like commission work and collaboration. Feel free to reach out to discuss your ideas.
