Alycia D'Avino's Profile
My name is Alycia D’Avino, I am a full time artist and business owner with a B.S in Art Education. I learned how to felt while teaching a summer art program at a Waldorf School of Garden City, NY. One of my mentors introduced me to the technique and I fell in love with it and began teaching the process to my students.
That summer was a very tough time for me. It had been more than 3 years since I had graduated and I had yet to find a permanent job within my field. I was struggling with my finances, my health, and to top it off I had just moved. At this time, felting was the only thing that took the stress away. And so I began a felting frenzy…from that frenzy grew YUMMI. A whimsical line of accessories and home decor for unique individuals inspired by my love for color.
As a starving artist I started off with craft shows…
