Originally from California, Troy Berggren Lacey has worked in fiber art since learning to knit and crochet at an early age. She attended the Waldorf School, a school that places human development and art at the center of its curriculum and specializes in enabling students to choose their individual path through life. Lacey uses the process of wet felting to make her original designs and one-of-a-kind pieces. Wet felting takes advantage of the tiny fibers in wool yarns and fabrics and the lubrication provided by friction and soapy water to create varied textures of cloth. Not only does Lacey make felts, she uses creative techniques such as needle felting, spinning, dyeing her spun wool, crocheting and knitting to create her unique designs.
Lacey states, “I love natural fibers. When I spin wool, I think of the history of the animal. Being at one with nature puts life in perspective. I am recycling nature to create my personal story. I always feel at peace when I create art. I can enjoy the moment. My goal is to live in balance and harmony." www.berggrenfibers.com
