About Robin Wiltse:

Of her work, Robin Wiltse says: As an artist I observe and absorb colours, inspired by the play of light and the spaces in between. Working with fibre I am drawn to the weightless, familiar and tactile luminosity of wool. I have been striving for control and detail with a single needle, entangling loose strands into patterns, forms and illustrations. I am building stories with layers, delighting in the harmonies and discords that occur in the relationships of colours. Wrestling in soapy water a painting of a million strands emerges, invoking memory and feeling. It is through this process, this art of felting, that I am able to be physically connected and sensitive to the unfolding.

About Monica Carpendale:

Monica is the founder of and academic dean at the Kutenai Art Therapy Institute. She has 25 years of experience in art therapy, teaching, supervising and clinical practice.
