Boreal Owl

This piece began with finding some lichen covered bark on a wooded path near my home. I wanted to try incorporating the bark into a felted piece. I like the way the colors and textures work together in this piece. (2019)

Images of Lake Elkhorn

These are felted interpretations of photos taken around Lake Elkhorn in Columbia, MD - the place where I live.

She captures the beauty and intrigue of the lake with her phone's camera and sends pictures to me to interpret into feltings.
