needle felting

I have been enchanted by needle felting from the moment I first picked up a needle 10 years ago. My work ranges from flat painterly images to deeply sculptural pieces. I am as happy creating traditional designs as I am working with abstract and contemporary styles.

Part of my joy of working in a non-traditional medium is playing with how far I can push it; How deep can the surface texture be and still maintain the desired effect, what background fabrics allow for successful needle felting, what surface embellishments are effective… it’s a great journey of discovery.

My work has been in solo and group exhibits in the N.E. area, in numerous periodicals and in my book “Creative Needle Felting, Wool Art with A Painterly Style”. I teach needle felting locally and around the country.
