Donna’s Mantra: Life is short, do what makes you happy every day, be sure it includes luxury fiber!
Donna Markey (AKA Mrs. Wooly) lives in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia with her husband, two dogs, two cats and three hawks. She’s addicted to luxury fibers and uses them to create functional artwork.
Nature provides the inspiration for Donna’s work, both with fiber and watercolor painting. Magic happens when watercolor paints meet wet paper, the same way it does when knitted fabrics or dyed fibers are layered and felted. Donna thinks of her yarn work as “painting with fiber” and finds the process both meditative and mentally restorative. A long-time yoga student, Donna also offers yoga and knitting retreats to share with others the Zen-like link between the two activities.
