I am a wife, mother and full time Physician Assistant. We live outside the OKC metro and enjoy being out "in the country" away from the hustle and bustle of "town". I have been a PA since 2005 and love my job working in urgent care.
In my spare time, I love to spend time with my family outdoors, garden, read and of course create fiber art. I have loved art my entire life- drawing, painting, crafting, all of it! As an adult, I have continued to paint occasionally but have also learned to crochet and most recently felting!
Whether as a PA or as a Fiber Artist, I love to teach. I have recently begun teaching small felting workshops in my local area. The Fiber Art Community has been so welcoming and generous to me and it is an honor to "pay it forward" and hopefully inspire others to create their own beautiful art.
Fiber art is one of my happy places. I started out exploring crochet and knitting and have absolutely fallen in love with felting, both needle and wet variations. I strive to create unique fiber art pieces using high quality wool, silk, alpaca, and other natural materials. I draw my inspiration for many of my creations from nature, adding a touch of whimsy here and there.
I sincerely hope you enjoy my creations and that they bring you joy! ~Treka
What is WET FELTING?
Wet Felting is a process in which water and soap are applied to processed wool and other natural fibers, then subjected to pressure and friction from your hands or other tools to create felt. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind creation using high quality wool, silk, alpaca, bamboo, or other natural fibers. Wearable pieces such as scarves may be dry cleaned if needed - care for them as you would a silk blouse or wool sweater.
What is NEEDLE FELTING?
Needle Felting is a process in which a small, barbed needle is used to sculpt, and shape processed wool and other natural fibers. Each piece is a one-of-a-kind creation using high quality wool, silk, alpaca, bamboo, or other natural fibers. While some needle felted pieces may be somewhat firm and sturdy, they are not intended to be toys and may have small pieces that could be a choking hazard to small children.
