Welcome to my artistic life! I am an American textile Artist living in the Middle East. I’m from Greenfield, Indiana and I live in Jaffa, Israel; My family and I, our four cats, two turtles, and our Bull Terrier Louie live a multi-cultural life.
Ever since I can remember I’ve been making things! I’m inspired by my three girls and a love for art, animals, gardening, travel and photography. I use the textile technique of needle felting to create animals, dolls, masks and puppets. I donate to animal rescue organizations from the sale of specific felted sculptures.
I started sewing costumes and making toys for my girls when they were little; after we moved to Israel I started a business and wrote two books based on making beautiful things for children. Today my artistic focus has changed to making art for adults who art in touch with their inner child!
I’ve always loved to take photographs, especially when I travel; many of my captured moments are priceless to me! You can buy my patterns or request custom needle felted pieces on my Etsy site; you can purchase my artwork or request a custom needle felted sculpture on the Artizan Made site.
