Hey there folks!

Thanks for taking the time to come in and have a look around my needle felting shop! ( If you arrived here and really have no idea what needle felting is, copy and paste this link for a full video explanation on the craft : http://www.craftedu.com/an-overview-of-needle-felting/play-MzA1MjI0MzA1MA )
Even better, you took it a step further and clicked on my profile to learn more about the woman and artist behind the creation. That's Great and I welcome the interest!

My journey with art began where most of ours do, in childhood, and has gone through many dips and turns, highs and lows , I have always loved to sew and create all sorts of things with the machine, I was a lampworker and made glass beads in my 20's from there I spent time traveling the world a bit, landed and started a family.

My journey with art began where most of ours do, in childhood, and has gone through many dips and turns, highs and lows , I have always loved to sew and create all sorts of things with the machine, I was a lampworker and made glass beads in my 20's from there I spent time traveling the world a bit, landed and started a family. This then became my art and expression for quite some time, but there comes a time when, you gotta get back out there. That time has come.

My passion for working with wool and needle felt making really began while pregnant with my second child, living in the hills above Jerusalem. I took my first class, and basically, that was it. I had never felt so connected to any medium before. I love anything I can do with my hands, but this specific material was like magic for me. Like we had some kind of connection where we really could communicate with one another during the creative process, and what came out from under the needle was ALIVE.I was hooked! That was a few years ago, and I had a super busy couple of years with my little ones at home, but the call was heard yet again and it has truly become Mama's bubble bath!

I realized quite quickly that people around me were impressed and thought I should move to the next level and sell my sculptures.Well, here I am, doing just that due to the ease of creating an online Etsy stop!

So that's me, as an artist/crafter in a nutshell. Mostly, I am a Mama to my two beautiful babies which is the real joy in my life. But when they or I need a brake in the monotony, I am found in my studio with needle and wool, creating my little beings of light!

I hope you find what your looking for, and if not, contact me and let's see if we can create it together!
