About FamiliarOddlings

On Etsy since 2010

Life on Earth is a little odd for us all

Pieces of tissue paper twitch and come to life as flying dragons. Bruises on a pear stare back at you with mischievous plans. A pile of rags wraps and knots into a magical mummy. The creative spark is all around us!

I have always loved making creatures out of whatever I could get my hands on. It was in 2007 that I stumbled upon the art of needle felting and have yet to exhaust the possibilities of this fiber medium. The scope of wool creation is truly immense! I am equally fascinated by the natural world and the world of imagination, and you will find sloths, tapirs, and lorises alongside fantastical griffins, snonkeys, and dragons in my shop.

In 2017, I began exploring Crayola crayons as a serious art form and even made my wedding invitations using my crayon drawings. I love surprising people with the seemingly ordinary by showing how astonishing the world really is.

I find something mysterious and magical in all the creatures of Earth - even the humble garden snails contains within it unfathomable oddity and yet those eyes, reaching out on alien translucent stalks, peer at you like a curious friend. I believe my own oddness helps me see the familiar in the strangest of places - and the oddness in the most ordinary.

I enjoy doing all sorts of art and crafting. Check back often to see something new!
