I am a fiber artist and teacher. I have been working with rug hooking for the past 10 years. I design and hook large birds with hand dyed wools and other materials. My inspiration for the birds I design comes from watching the birds in nature and than researching the birds shapes, colors, movements and habits.The technique I use to hook the birds is to raise the wool for the bird and sculpt it into the shape of the birds wings or body. I enhance the finished piece with textured yarns and feathers.My birds have received 4 viewers choice awards from Hooked In the Mountains shows. I show work at Valley Arts Exhibits in VT.I have been juried and accepted in Celebrations Magazine 3 times.
