Cynthia enjoys any opportunity to demonstrate or teach felting as she believes creating public awareness of the felting process and sharing the potential of this medium are ongoing opportunities. In an effort to share the world of felting to those outside of textiles, Cynthia has participated in cultural & visual arts boards and artist selection panels for municipal projects.
Cynthia’s studio, called ARTiFELTs, is located in Cary NC. Cynthia’s studio is open by appointment.
Cynthia's husband, Scott, and 3 children, Tyler, Matt & Katelyn, are her biggest fans and best inspiration.
