Involved in fiber arts most of her life, Taos Wool Festival sparked Kim's passion for felting.

Lise has been dabbling in fibre ever since - as a teenager - her mother taught her to knit. Since the 1990s she has honed her skills with fine handmade paper, and felt art and accessories. She continues to explore and learn about the immense options for the medium that drive her felt art.
