My work is presently centered on anthropomorphic figure pieces that I’ve created primarily out of needle felted wool over a wire and quilt batting armature I create. I’ve found that I increasingly challenge myself to imbue these figures with their human-like characteristics as minimally as possible. I strive to have the gesture and expression of the animal tell the story rather than simply having them dressed up in clothing. I constantly look to evoke a sense of wonder, tell a story, or offer a bit of humor. My work is most often lighthearted, but occasionally my animal creations have a bit more to say. I always enjoy when viewers step in closer to take in the small details hat I add to each sculpture. This year I will also have a few wet-felted pieces added in with my sculptures. These works will include some more functional offerings such as vessels and bags.
