FIBREARTISTRY - Home
A professional feltmaker since 2006, I am inspired by the variety of natural colors and textures in wool and silk.
Growing up on a farm and learning fibre techniques from my grandmother, I developed a unique approach to highlighting the material’s natural beauty.
"I like to suggest rather than portray, evoke responses."
My passion is expressed in a variety of applications from art work to functional craft.
The work has shown internationally and is sold across Western Canada.

"I love the starkness of Tree-in-Half by Helga Schulte-Schroeer. The softness of the medium contrasts with the stone-like appearance of the surface. It brings to mind petroglyphs or petrified wood, ghosts of the distant past imagining what once was. Like swimmers and fish painted on a desert cliff evoke memories of a long gone lake or ocean, this tree warns us of soon to be lost forests and towering giants embedded in memory and concrete only."
