Welcome to my online gallery of needle-felted art; needle felting is the textile art of sculpting dry wool with specially barbed needles. As in classic forms of additive sculpture, each figure starts with a wool base and shapes of wool are added and smoothed with the felting needles to create each 3-D object. Great detail can be achieved by the felting process as well as very durable and sturdy forms. My pieces are needle felted from various types of wool, they have glass eyes, polymer clay noses or teeth and bendable legs; each piece takes a minimum of 10 to 15 hours to complete; these pieces are not toys. My goal is to create a realistic replica of my subjects and I often try to convey humor in their poses or in the actions that they are taking.
