Growing up on a bio-dynamic farm in Germany I learned to appreciate the abundance and beauty of nature - provided freely at the price of hard work.
Fibre work was an integral part of my upbringing and I learned to manipulate wool from my grandmother at the early age of three. I took an immediate liking to the endless possibilities of the material and have worked with it ever since.
Aside from 9 years of running a farm in Southern Manitoba, I earned a living in the social field. Throughout this time I always had fibre projects on the go and taught myself through experimenting and sharing with other fibre enthusiasts.
Most of my wool is sourced locally. I like to meet the producers - farmers as well as sheep, that is...
I am no stranger to the Winnipeg craft scene, having run the Prairie Craft Gallery (Portage and Main Concourse) for 3 years from 1987 to 1989 before moving to Vancouver.
