A little bit of magic...

I have been creating art my whole life, needle felting since 2008. Bringing things to life that are in your head, a memory, your dreams is a gift and I love being able to do it in a medium that is full of warmth and life.

Doll making is a very fluid process - I start with an idea and it does not always end where the idea began. I love that process. The wool, clay, or whatever medium sort of tells you what it wants to become.

Wee Beasties have been my favourite project to date. The monsters under your bed and in the walls are lovely wee things that just want to make you smile and I love being able to show that.

    I have been an artist all of my life from the time I could pick up a crayon. Fantasy is reality to me, it helps us escape to a place full of magic and innocence. It is very satisfying to bring things to life you once could only see in dreams.

I am a self taught artist living in New Zealand. I work in a variety of mediums and work on perfecting my craft constantly...I am always learning and trying new things.

A note about needle felted items: needle felting is a labour intensive process of creating soft sculptures out of fibers with a single needle.
Each work can take from 8-100 hours to create and is priced accordingly.

Additional policies and FAQs

I take custom orders and am happy to work with you to make your ideal item. Feel free to start an Alchemy request or convo me for more information. I have several custom listings in the shop. If they do not meet your requirements, please contact me and I can create a new listing for you.


Pricing- The prices for my pieces are moderate for this type of work. I put a lot of consideration into how I set prices. This includes time spent on the item, cost of materials, complexity of design and other factors.

Needle felting is a labour intensive art when done properly and I spend anywhere between 8-100 hours depending on the piece. Many of my felts are mixed media and contain several components (all handmade by me).

The items may be small in size but are made meticulously and I take pride in my craftsmanship. My work is a representation of me as an artist and I only sell items of high quality. All of my customers have been thrilled with their pieces and I would love to add you to a long line of satisfied customers.
