Meet the Artists of AHA

  • Inspired by the textures in nature and literature, I design one-of-a-kind felted garments and accessories from a variety of new and up-cycled materials. Living in the magical woods of Mosshollow Hill, surrounded by sheep, chickens, goats, and oaks, nestled in the Aromas Hills, provides my inspiration. I'm a full-time public school teacher, a fiber artist, and a reader. It is my mission to inspire my students to create through repurposing rather than consuming and explore various fiber mediums. In doing so, I strive to be as environmentally friendly as possible. I believe in supporting local and independent businesses, because when artists work together, the world benefits. To find out more about the ancient art of felting and meet our lovely sheep, join the Mosshollow Hill community on our website and on Instagram.
