I sculpt my unique creations by connecting wool fibers: whether it’s stabbing wool with a barbed needle OR using hot water and agitation. I’ve been an artist my entire life working in craft, digital art, and hand drawn illustrations. I like working with wool because it’s organic, making each creation unique. With a love for animals and the outdoors, felting was an obvious choice for me as an artistic medium, because I can sculpt nature art using natural materials. I enjoy spreading the love of felting through workshops and Do It Yourself felting kits.
What is felting, you ask? Felting is the art of sculpting with wool. Wool has tiny barbs in it and the goal is to connect these fibers together. I use special barbed needles with lots of stabbing to connect these notched fibers OR I can use hot water and agitation (and lots of rolling) to connect the fibers. I find both ways are tons of fun and I base which one I use based on what I want the final art to look like.
