About Us


To say that Barbara’s designs are multifaceted is an understatement. Her distinctive body of work includes media ranging from fabric, fibers and felt to metal, wire and wood. She finds inspiration in the world around her, drawing upon the style, color and textures of places she has lived in or traveled through since childhood. Many elements in her work come from the shapes and colors of Mother Nature herself.

For the last fifteen years Barbara has focused her talents on felting and marrying felt with other materials in fun, innovative designs. “The challenge in my work is finding ways to make the juxtaposition of hard and soft, bright and dull, rough and smooth work to create a unified piece.

And if you just happen to smile at a piece and not know why, that is ok too.
