I tend to gravitate towards animals that are a little goofy looking but sometimes I just feel the need to try to replicate an interesting feature with wool. Items marked as sold can typically be created again – please contact me to discuss.
Wood and Wool Fusion Art
I think live edge slabs of wood are works of art on their own so I build on their beauty by pairing them with an original wool painting that is an echo of the wood’s shape or movement.
I started my journey with felting taking a local art class on painting landscapes with wool and fell in love with the medium. I now create paintings inspired by nature.
I like to create sculpture incorporating found objects, especially when the object is an antique that I can repurpose into a contemporary art piece. For instance, I found a clothes drying rack from 1887 and knew that it would make an impressive hanging installation.
I have also started scavenging branches from the woods and creating branch weavings using wool roving, yarn, silk ribbons, fabric and felt remnants.
