About

Him has ideas. Shima gives them life.

In my work, I use my imaginations to create characters, creatures, animals…in my way.
Needle felting is my way to do it and I love the result of softness and warmth. Once felted, the piece speaks to me; it's a great feeling to give life to fluffy wool.

I strive to make creatures that are born to be loved by someone and bring big smiles to their faces.

Needle felting is very simple process. Poke some wool with a needle felting needle (a kind of barbed needle), many many times. The more I poke, the more the wool gets harder, more compact and starts to take the shape I desire. It is a very simple process, but not easy; it takes a long time and requires a steady hand.
Most of my creations are all wool however I sometimes use wire structures for larger works. I am not limited to using other material to make creatures if my design calls for it.

I taught myself how to needle felt. It was difficult in the beginning but with each project I learn more about working with this warm material and I enjoy the process of discovery.
