Looking forward to the Craft NS winter show!!!
I’m so happy that Craft NS is having a show again, Fall wouldn’t be complete without it! Such an amazing list of local artisans, I’m honoured to be joining them. Link to event is here.
light and airy
these wraps are lighter than air, which means they can be worn lots of different ways. While they look delicate, nuno felted piece are sturdy and long wearing.

’tis the season… for updates :P
Seems I prefer the making to the recording! I’ve been very busy with all kinds of new pieces over the Fall and Winter 2019-20 but none have made it to the website yet!
So, here’s a snippet of this years works with more to come. My menagerie continues to grow with lots of dramatic dragons inspired by GOT, seals from looking out the window at Aspotogan (Mi’kmaq for where the seals come in and go out), the ever favourite foxes utilizing colourful vintage men’s plaid scarves.
I’ve also really been enjoying using resists to create seamless pieces, like my one piece “Peas on Earth” cowl with 3D pea pods on vintage acid green silk and “SuperHero” , a reversible cowl with lightening bolt cutouts revealing the neon coloured sari silk underneath.
This season also saw a lot of felt lace, using the amazing self healing properties of wool to create delicate patterns of different shapes and holes.
Felting in the heat of summer? Why not!
It’s been far too long since I’ve posted pictures of my work, so here is some of the latest from the 2016/2017 season. I’m now working on new pieces for the fall, inspired by past favourites but always striving for new and exciting combinations. Stay tuned for new work and updates on where to find me in the Fall, including the Etsy Made in Canada- Maritime Makers event September 23rd at the Cunard Centre. Can’t wait!!!
