At an early age my Mom and Grandma would sit me down and practice sewing, knitting, embroidery, cross stitch, or whatever else would keep me busy. I had a love of making and learned as much as I could in fiber arts.
After high school I went on to study art education in college and graduated with a B.S. in Art Education from St. Cloud State University in the fall of 2005. I later attended Concordia University Irvine to get a Masters in Education.
I dabbled in painting and ceramics for years, but after taking a needle felting class with my aunt, I realized I had found my new media. I am amazed by the versatility of working with wool and silk fibers. After some encouragement I was determined to start selling my wearable art under the name Wool-EN-Design.
I currently teach elementary art in Northfield, Minnesota. I am also an instructor at the Northfield Arts Guild, 50 North, and Northfield Yarn.
I hope you enjoy my work,
