Primary Medium: Sculpture
Demo: needle felting wool creatures
Art has always been my passion. It's exciting to set out art materials and create something from scratch in either 2-D or 3-D. Sculpture has always been my favorite artform. I enjoy seeing a piece from every angle. In felting, I employ the same basic principles used in clay sculpture, but with wool as the medium. This method allows me to create more realistic-looking animals. Starting with a posable armature and ending with a bit of whimsy gives them their individual personalities. My imagination comes to life as I wonder in just what kind of mischief these beautiful creatures may find themselves.
