Over the past 25 years as I traveled in my career as an animator I gleaned an acute awareness of the tactile nature of textiles. I took many classes in embroidery, pottery, batik, bead stringing and making
and finally in Berlin I found the art of felt making. In 2002 I made the decision to focus less on my animation career and more on my fibre art path. I have continued to explore all the joys and trials of being a fibre artist, but I do jump back in to animation when something wonderful comes along. I worked on the Universal feature "Curious George" in 2005 and on "The Princess and the Frog" which is a Disney feature and was released in December 2009.
I continue to try out new things, taking a wire sculpture course in Haliburton ON a couple years ago and just recently learnimg the art of Rug Hooking.
