"When I moved to New Zealand, the first thing I noticed were sheep dotting the green fields or paddocks. Soon afterward I saw my first nuno felted scarf in a gift shop. The scarf was warm and sturdy, yet delicate and drapable. The felting technique I so admired was nuno felting—a process of coaxing slender wool fibers through loose silk fabric.
The scrumptious feel of the merino fleeces, the drape of the scarves and the depth of colors one can produce through dying led to a thorough enjoyment of each stage of the nuno felting process.
Felting, one of man’s oldest crafts has been made new again through combining wool and silk to make nuno fabrics.
I find my inspiration from New Zealand artists, the ocean waves and wild life. The intent of each piece is to provide not only warmth but a sense of peace and comfort."
