My favorite medium these days is wool. The wool I use is natural sheep wool, hand dyed in many vibrant shades, sometimes mixed with silk, cotton yarn, and alpaka wool from animals I know by first name. Painting with wool requires a fresh way of seeing, combined with a very physical, intuitive technique to translate the imagined into a composition that is, through the wet felting process, transformed like alchemy into its final form. Layers of color, detail and direction move, merge and melt into substance. Compositions emerge, drawn with soft organic fibers and turned into a one of a kind, dynamic, colorful, warm and natural medium.
Some of these wool paintings are available for purchase. I also create commissioned pieces inspired by your personality, your interests, your favorite colors, and the space where it will live and breathe that inspiration back to you. Contact me to discuss your ideas!
