Growing up in Switzerland, I began knitting around the age of six with the help of my mother, a life-long knitter herself. Under the guidance of a home economics teacher, I learned professional design and finishing techniques. I soon applied these skills to making sweaters, socks, doll clothes, and scarves.
I discovered felting (or fulling, as a technical term for felting a knitted garment is known), when I came across a felted hat in a yarn shop. The process, which involves hot water, soap, and friction to turn a loosely knitted fabric into a warm, solid, and virtually waterproof garment, fascinated me. I have been experimenting with different shapes and colors ever since.
After several years of knitting and felting part time and selling my work through shops and galleries, I took a leap and started doing art and craft festivals ten years ago. I sell my hats all over California and the United States. I combine my travels to art festivals with visits to national parks, museums, and yarn and fabric shops.
I live and work in Little River, California and an avid hiker and birder.
