ABOUT THE ARTIST
I make things from wool and other animal fibers as well as found objects. I also paint and print and have done a number of public works for the city of Boise and have been included in gallery shows throughout the United States. In 2003, I won a Fellowship Award from the Idaho Commission on the Arts. I also volunteer teaching English and sewing to refugees and I love fostering dogs from the Idaho Humane Society. — Grant Olsen
Artist Statement: This piece is made from un-spun and un-dyed wool roving from a local sheep farm.
