About

Making Wool Come to Life

When I was a little girl, my mom taught me the handwork arts--sewing, crochet, knitting and embroidery. I didn't like to follow patterns, so I would just make up my own designs for doll clothes and embroidered art. Decades later, when my son went to Waldorf school, I rediscovered handwork. As a Waldorf mom, I loved crocheting and knitting animals and dolls out of soft, natural, luxurious fibers like cashmere, alpaca, angora and merino wool.

When I finally discovered needle felting, I knew I had found my artistic medium. The world opened up for my creative muse. If I could dream it, I could do it.

I had a long career as a journalist, but when my company dramatically downsized, I decided to throw myself into my art full time.

I love nature, adore animals and enjoy spending time in the woods. In my 20s, I spent several summers working in national parks and observing wildlife. My wool animals are inspired by those I observe in nature. I also spend countless hours studying photographs of animals from every angle. This has helped me create a sense of realism in my needle felt animals.

As one customer said, "When I peeled back the tissue surrounding my three brown bunnies, I gasped. These furry friends looked like they had been plucked right out of the forest. They are utterly adorable, life-like, and enchanting."

I prefer the softest, most luxurious natural fibers for my creations including alpaca, llama, yak, camel, merino wool and angora.

I also create wool paintings and book illustrations. I pioneered a style of illustrating books using wool as the medium. I have illustrated three children's books for disability advocate and author, the late Jewel Kats. My first book as author and illustrator will be released in 2017—“Seasons of Joy: Outdoor Day is for Every Play.”

I hope you enjoy my wool worlds.

Welcome to my shop. I hope you enjoy my creations. My needle felted figures are original designs that I created with the help of my muse. I do not use patterns, so although I may create a figure more than once, no two are exactly the same.

Your felted creature is signed and comes with care instructions.

My figures are made of a variety of natural fibers which may include sheeps wool, alpaca, llama, camel, mohair which I try to obtain from local, sustainable farms. I prefer to use very soft wools.
