Growing up in the Finger Lakes, the regional terrain has shown me the peace and beauty of nature. I have always enjoyed the process of creating, using landscape and surrealism as my main passions for expression.
I was first introduced to fiber arts and needle felting in June 2014 while volunteering in Rochester. I saw an inspiring felting demonstration, and from there I began creating my own needle felt paintings and pushing myself to new limits with this medium.
My inspirations are the landscapes that I see in my local community and travels all around the world. Nature and my own life experiences, has all inspired and influenced my works of art.
Nature is my center and capturing the beauty of nature is my mediation. I do as much of my landscape outside in the very environment that I am capturing(plein air). I plan to keep pushing my boundaries of needle felting by doing more large scale felts that highlight 3-D relief aspects with striking details.
