What is my creative back-story?

Three Fathom Fibre Arts retail store is located in my home. I find nothing more pleasing than walking through space, absorbing the bright colors, and touching the many different textures.  On warm days, the sun fills my home with the pleasing smell of wool.  This is my happy place.

Born in Dubuque, Iowa, USA, I grew up influenced by the art, artists, and poets surrounding me.  Fortunately, I was also able to travel the world, experiencing many cultures, their art, and architecture.  Even as a child, involved in art classes, I was constantly working on a creative project.  My college education began with the study of Fine Arts at Clarke University, eventually transitioning to the completion of degrees in Architecture ( the University of Colorado and University of Virginia). Moving to Canada in 2004, I continue to be inspired by the natural beauty of the Maritimes.  I am now practicing architecture in downtown Halifax full time.

As an additional creative outlet, I started Three Fathom Fibre Arts in 2012.  Fibre arts have a very architectural feel to me.  I see most of my work through an architectural lens, observing texture, pattern, form, rhythm, scale, and structure.  My personal practice is focused on weaving, knitting, and felting. Finished pieces are available in my shop, often designed for special orders.

I believe in supporting others in their fibre work through classes, retail, and project advice. My retail shop is centred around Nova Scotia hand dyed yarn by Mineville Wool Project as well as yarn by Fleece Artist, Hand Maiden, Knitca and Ashford.
