Raised in Vancouver, BC, attended university in Montreal, volunteered in Haiti for 18 months, moved to Seattle for love and work, left work for babylove, started down the craftpath when we decided it would be cheaper to make our own wedding invitations (ha!) and haven’t looked back.
Now I spend most of my time trying to figure out how to charm my husband and children into loving the crafts that capture my imagination so we can spend all our time and money using our hands together. If you’re interested in reading more about the early years and my path, I wrote an article for Beams and Struts called “Becoming an Artist on a Mother’s Schedule“. Lorraine Edmonds, a member of the Surface Design Association, wrote a member spotlight for the Washington Chapter here.
In 2007, I turned my passion for feltmaking into a business. You can find SpiderFelt on Etsy, in several retail locations around Seattle, and teaching classes at my studio in the BallardWorks building. Our doors are wide open for the 2nd Saturday Ballard Artwalk, but if you feel the need to talk fiber on a Tuesday morning, just send me a message and I will be happy to accommodate.
