Shiela Alexandrovich

Shiela Alexandrovich has been working in the traditional arts for well over 35 years. She started with beadwork and basketry, experimenting with techniques and materials. Jewelry making has been a long time practice, and wet and needle felting have surfaced in the last 20 years. Shiela lives an off grid lifestyle, with small farm life that inspires color, design and materials that she uses. She exhibits and teaches locally, as well as teaching numerous workshops throughout the Pacific Northwest. 
Shiela likes teaching kids, and always learns something in the process. The goal is always to have students, both kids and adults, come away with something that they cannot believe that they made.
