"beautiful view "

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am very excited to say that my work was featured in the September/October 2016 issue of WNC Magazine!  WNC Magazine is a regional magazine which showcases arts and music events, places of interest, history of the area, great places to eat and much more, all here in Western North Carolina. There is a photo of one of my pieces, and a brief write-up about me on their artist feature page, called " The Last Page". The link below will take you to their website.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~    In August, 2014 I did a web interview with Shahar Boyayan for FeltingTV.  We talked about how I got started creating felted landscapes, and my technique a bit.  The sound isn't quite synced with the picture, but you can view it here.
