Rita Hicks Davis' Profile

About

My Etsy 'arts and crafts' shop is active once again for the Spring season with one of a kind arts, crafts and design.
I use 100% wool or wool roving for my needle felted items. I dye or over dye to create the range of colors you will find.
Using machine stitching, hand stitching and hand needle felting, each item is professionally finished. Nothing is just 'knocked' out quickly!
I also love to use antique and vintage findings and trims that add to the uniqueness of each piece.
As a self-taught, traditional folk artist I try to imbue my own color and design sensibilities into each object I make being careful not to repeat anything exactly the same as the first.
My aim is to delight my customers with specially crafted objects and provide expert customer service while relying on the Etsy platform to showcase my crafts.
I will be happy to answer any questions you may have…

I experiment in many different art & craft forms, but have an affinity with fabric and surface design. Recycled wool cloth continues to be a trend in my craft work.
One of my other loves is with primitive hooked rugs using strips of felted wool fabric looped through a burlap backing.
On this site you will also find items that are related to my graphic design business. These may include artwork that I have designed and had printed.
I choose Etsy as a place that allows one to showcase arts and crafts in an environment that is non-exclusive, and in this way liberating for me as an artist.
Thank you for reading a little about me and my work, and for viewing my items for sale!
