Announcement   ** NEEDLE FELTING WOOL: I offer limited supplies of my Superior Core Wool for Needle Felting from our Suffolk/Hampshire sheep. It is the best wool for core felting as it is a short fiber that locks together very tightly when needle felted. Give it a try today. It's also great for ballet dancers who dance on pointe!

Pet Portraits and Other Animals Sculpted in Homegrown Wool.

My work celebrates the lives of animals (wildlife, barn yard, companion animals). A finished sculpture represents a relationship of love, respect and gratitude between human and animal; for me, the maker, and for those who commission or purchase the pieces.

When I begin a companion animal commission, I enjoy hearing about the animal: its personality, habits, activities and special physical characteristics. But what really motivates me is the love and caring that the person expresses in their description of their pet. When I sculpt, my intention is to communicate that love and the relationship in the finished piece.

Occasionally, I have the opportunity to sculpt an animal I choose, like the Dressage Horse. These are animals I admire and with whom I feel a connection.

My own love of nature and all animals is part of the energy involved in the transformation of wool into portrait, from the care of my sheep and preparation of the wool to the needle felting process.

In addition, I keep FinnSheep and Gulf Coast Native Sheep for their wool and for milk. They have great personalities and lovely wool for spinning!

Thanks for stopping in for a visit. Come back again soon.

I am trying to reduce my negative impact on our beautiful home planet. This is what has lead me to creating renEWEables: homegrown, handspun yarn and/or needle felted sculptures from our Jacob Sheep, Suffolk Sheep and German Angora Rabbit. I try to purchase as little as possible when making work. My animals are treated with the utmost care and are given as much freedom as possible. This means that my Angora bunny, Tulip, goes outside pretty often to romp and munch in the grass. I don't get quite as much Premium fiber, but she is happier. I do very little, if any, chemical parasite control with my Jacobs and rabbit. I do use acid dyes for the non-natural colors, but I understand that mordants of most kinds can be toxic. I do my best to be mindful of my impact. The quality of my relationship with my animals is paramount. They are not pets, but they are not objects either.

Thanks for stopping by my shop!
