I make needle felted miniatures out of lamb wool from a local farm in Estonia, Europe and a bit of Merino wool. Mostly cats, inspired by three cats I've become friends with, one lives with me (Kruup aka Supsu) and and the blue grumpy cat is my sister's 16 pound tomcat named Jokker.
Mermaids are inspired by folklore and to capture happiness and living well, I wanted them to be voluminous/chubby/fat mermaids however you say it, you got to have those extra tires to carry all that party with you! But they are not sluggish, don't get fooled by misconceptions, so be afraid, they will get you before you know it.

I love making black and white ink paintings and colourful paintings with acrylics or oils. If you have any questions at all or would like me to make some "view it in a room" photos for you, let me know.

I've been strolling around etsy since 2008 and discovered needle felting in 2007 and oil painting in 6th grade. Etsy is a lovely community, if you're new here, then check out the forums also and if you need help post your questions there or message me!

Estonia is a small country in North Europe, with about 1 million people living here. We have our own language and history, first people moved here about 10 000 years ago, after the last ice age. This is a northern country with long winters (like Canada and Finland, where your winters get to -40 sometimes). And that is why everyone loves wool, me included :)
