I love hair. Hair off of sheep, llamas, alpaca, and little goats. Hair from rabbits and even bison. I spend a whole lot of time thinking about and playing with hair. I also love dolls. I didn't play with dolls when I was a girl. I started playing with dolls when I was about 25. By that time I had already started playing with hair.

I taught myself needle felting from the first poke. This method of soft sculpture uses a barbed needle to enmesh wool fibers together through friction. You basically start with something roughly resembling a cotton ball and mold it by poking it thousands of times. In the last couple of years the art has really taken off but when I started there was not much reference material available so I made up my own methods…
