About

All of my felt is made with at least some wool fibers. Wet felt is made by wetting the fibers with soapy water and then hand rubbing them to get them to entangle. Needlefelt is made by poking the wool with a barbed needle to entangle the fibers.I posted pictures of the process on http://www.flickr.com/photos/feltinspiration/sets/72157610840926917/
I think I have finally found my medium. I love that I can sculpt or paint with the wool, make art for art's sake or art to wear. The possibilities seem endless.
I was a studio art major at Smith (AC).
