My mother taught me to knit as a teen and it has been a great source of enjoyment ever since. Not only was it a bonding tool for us, but it was also a great addition to my work. I was fascinated with knitting because it kept my hands busy but I also loved the variety of yarns and fibers that could be found. I learned how to felt wool roving in graduate school and used it in installations and book work. When I moved to Florida I learned to spin and dye my own yarn. The art yarn I create is such fun to make and to knit. It combines textures, exotic fibers, colors and usually a little sparkle. Each skein is unique and I love that I can use my own yarn in my books, installations and more.
