I focus on felting, hand-dying wool roving and polymer clay to combine these into earrings, necklaces, and pendants. Color has the strongest hand in inspiring my work as I use it to convey the mood of the piece.
My interest in wood ranges from managing our Classified hardwood forest through timber harvest and saw milling to proper lumber drying. Almost everything I make in my shop/studio was once growing leaves on our property.
As a painter I was lucky to be born in the Netherlands and I am grateful for my technical and abstract upbringing against canvases of Rembrandt and Van Gogh. But it was here in the USA that I have found my Modernism.
Brooke's Candy Co.
Brookes Candy Co. was being formed long before Brooke knew it. As a teenager she made mints for her sister Danas wedding shower, only to get an order from a neighbor for more. Brooke also sold out of her Peanut Butter Buckeyes at a local festival when she was 14.
