This Birmingham fiber artist enjoys using her intuition, love of color, and the tactile quality of fibers to guide her in designing original felted art purses and totes.
She uses the rhythm of spinning yarn on her wheel and the clicking of knitting needles to attain a meditative state where inspiration for color combinations and different designs are born. Using the many fiber art skills of knitting, sewing, spinning, weaving, dying and felting,
Victoria creates original designs and transforms a variety of fibers into her functional and decorative fiber art purses and totes. Each purse and tote is one-of-a-kind and hand-knitted using handspun and top quality wools and novelty yarns. The original designed felted shapes are fixed through the process of machine fulling. Additional wool fibers are wet felted and needle felted to create the original art designs on the purses.
Victoria is a member of Greater Birmingham Fiber Guild, Handweaver's Guild of America and a juried fiber member of Alabama Designer/Craftsmen. Her works have been shown and sold in several states, in the Tahoe resort area and at local art shows and galleries. Her purses and totes and other felted art pieces are available through Cobb Lane Gallery.
