I have always had a deep connection to the natural world around me, translating natures’ magnificence. My passion has always lied in my desire to find texture, color, and lighting effects, in all things organic, offering an endless source of subjects and challenges for me. As a traditional landscape oil painter for over 50 years, I discovered needle felting as a new medium in 2019.
Needle felting is a process of matting down wool or other fibers, using specially designed sharp, barbed needle. Each piece starts with a base of felt or fabric then needle is pierced into loose wool fibers. Other fibers, yarns and embellishments are added to create other textures and three-dimensional effects.
