My Impressionistic, sculptural wall pieces capture the colors and textures of meadows, fields and gardens. My brushstroke is dyed and wet-felted wool. As I felt, I mix in chunks and tubes of color to achieve my impressionistic palette. In this unusual approach to using felt, the complexity of my patterns is only revealed when I cut into the felt and turn it on its edge. It always excites me to see what is inside. I build my sculptures piece by piece into a wooden frame using gel medium to bind and stiffen the edges. I try to be as painterly as possible despite the many steps and slow pace of this technique. I want my pieces to exude the same calmness and serenity one feels outside in nature.
