I remember taking walks with my sister to find bachelor buttons that grew along the edges of our fields in the summer. Or walking down the little line of grass by our cow pasture that always sprouted the first buttercups of Spring.
I grew up with nature right at my doorstep. I can’t help but be inspired by it! Living in Portland is great, but getting out into the countryside is like a breath of fresh air; a healthy dose of vitamins for my farm girl soul. There is something about my family’s farm that is so revitalizing. Spring, Summer, Autumn, or Winter; any time of the year.
Wool felting is rooted in nature; animals, plants, hands… So am I. I know that is a large part of the reason I am so drawn to the art.
